|The school project model log cabin uses horizontal logs |
which are notched to fit at the corners
|The vertical posts are cut to length and the|
vertical slots or mortices are cut with a chain saw
|Each filler log that fits between the|
posts have a tenon cut on the ends
|Once the logs are have their ends tenoned they can be lifted up and |
slid down the slots in the upright posts.
Notice the temporary bracing that holds the posts vertical.
|Once the walls are completed the roof frame is built.|
The top logs for the walls and the ridge pole
and then the rafters are raised and pined and nailed in place.
