the correct way to make log stairs

This is a set of stairs that I made for my brother's log home.They got damaged a little this past winter when the snow plow came a little too close to the bottom steps, but nothing that can't be fixed.Note the exact fit of the risers.No big gaps on the sides and each step is deep enough that you do not scrape your calves as you walk down them. This is how they are supposed to be made. Now I've just got to get back there and put up handrails .... maybe some nice burls .... or wagon wheels.

Here is a finishing touch to the "prow" building.....a set of stairs.The owner of this building likes it so much he ordered another one. No kidding. I'm just laying out all the measurements now. How 'bout a picnic table? Wouldn't this look great out near your barbecue? It could be yours.

Octagon

This home has an octagon shaped turret, as well as a large carport attached.

Tour Bus

Sometimes, tour buses of German visitors stop in as they are passing by. We have many German people living in the area and they tell us it reminds them of home.

Scribe a log with Tiny

Prow progress over the Easter Holidays. I sure hope you had a great one. I managed to fit in another birthday and spent some time with the grandkids and family. But, one day at a time, a little progress gets made and another log home gets closer to completion. Another five rounds to go.Here's a picture of how the logs fit together. Dollar bill tight. I am marking out the scribes, then the log will come down for cutting.

This is the actual scriber. I've modified it to fit my needs. I'll sell you the design for a skibillion dollars. Mind you, you can have the whole house for $54,000 CDN (well, not this one....coz it's already sold. But I can make another one just for you).
