Multiple pages! Nah nasa hasn't called yet. The reason not to spline is you would be creating a water trap. Flat on flat, notch and pass is very common, settles less than handscribed and....... I,ve done those! The small cabin with staging around it on my homepage is that style. We call the corner joint a notch, actually its a V and A type. I'll scan some photos I've got handy and look for more. These logs were 8" thick and 9 1/2-12" dia.
We measure width, make a center mark and plumb up to top edge at each end snap a line.This is the plane of the wall that you will keep straight from corner to corner and plumb from bottom to top. Routing a groove on the bottom of the log to lay foam tape in is a good idea. The narrower face is the top. When you place the next log atop (line vertically over line in course below) check to see that no ledges are left on exterior to catch rainwater coursing down the wall. If or rather when you see these scribe the upper logs profile onto the offending part of the lower log, remove the upper log. Drawknife a tad more than the scribe off the lower log to leave a drip edge and reset the upper log. Detail page on my site shows window and door bucks on this cabin. Use lags not spikes,no bark,keep whittling till it looks like a house.:)

Hugh, I don't have an interface for uploading pics. Just for showing pics already uploaded somewhere. I don't have the resources yet to store pictures. I have to pay for the space I use. I do have limited space for photos that you send me to post. I optimize them to decrease file size to about 8% of original. or store them off site and link to them.

Email me what you have and I will put them in your post. I will try to find a way to handle this problem. I want you guys to post!!
