Wouldnít it be cool if WM could put a horizontal edger on their mills that travels in front of the blade so we didnít have to do all this extra stuff to edge boards

The edger will take more work to set up. Yes, all the wood will go one way.

We are getting back to the cabin since we have some good weather again.

Here is what was done during the prep work as weather allowed the last few weeks.



 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 
The jig we built and are using is from Log Dovetail Jig Homepage and it works very well. I think the pics are all pretty self explanatory. If you have a question just ask.

The staining was completed on Wednesday and today is set for stacking the walls IF it dont rain, and right now that is not looking so good. I will post pictures from the stacking when we are done that part.  
If you ain't livin on the edge you are takin up way to much room. Of course at my age if I get too close to that edge any more theres a good chance I may fall off.

Looks good! What size did you saw your logs? Are they green?

May be a dumb question, but why are log structures not dead stacked? Is this to allow for less than perfect logs?

The logs are 6"X 9". The trees went down during a late summer storm in 16 so have been through 2 winters. They were sawed in August and dry stacked on a very windy hill. Testing for moisture says they are at 12% to 14%. The builder says that is about dry for this region.  The joints are cut to allow one inch chinking/insulation space. That how the owner wanted them after talking to the people at the log dovetail jig website.

It is certainly looking that way. Hopping to have the tin on by the weekend.

How did they do the mid span dovetail?
We rigged a second jig that followed the main jig to make bread cuts then cleaned them out and smoothed it all off with a slick work very well.
For that cery reason we gad a second set of top cants incase we screwed up the first ones. :D

Hi RJ. Yup sounds like we did pretty much the same thing. It worked very well. Was a bit fiddly but worked good. We have an extra log in case of screw ups but so far every thing has worked very well.
