Thank you guys, it's been slow going but worth it all the way so far.

Here's a milling video from yesterday.  Another long day but a good day.

As promised, we have a new scarf joint to layout and here's the how to, no time lapses in this one.

This is the cutting of an edge-halved and bridled scarf joint.  This is the joint we laid out in the last video.  This one is super easy to cut.

Test fitted the scarf for the top plate last night.  It went pretty well for the first one.  So much easier to cut that scarf than the ones in my ties.  The rest I'll cut on the saw mill, cut the time in half.  This joint sure will solve my setting the top plate dillema.

Hard to make progress a couple of hours at a time but we are chopping away at it.  Here's another one doing our edge halved and bridled scarf joint on the band mill.

Almost have this side of top plates ready to go.  It goes slow at a couple of hours a night but any progress is its own reward.

Spent a day in the woods with the boy dropping trees for our timber frame project.  It was a good day and a safe one too, can't ask for more than that.  Enjoy the show.

…I was all over the place with design ideas…

There's a useful tool https://hearthstonehomes.com/log-home-style-guide for anyone else experiencing the plight of the design aspect of their timber frame/log home projects.

It will get a lot of questions out of the way and can be a good reference for materials and pricing once you start the project also.

Thanks for sharing.  I need to update this thread but just have not had time in a long time.
