WOW… Great Job! This is gorgeous!

My wife and I are going to build a house in the next 5 years or so, and I’d love to have a log home, BUT, I don’t want all the exterior maintenance that goes with it. This gives me some great ideas…

...Great craftsmanship here…. thanks for posting!

That is awesome! I LOVE timber frame/log homes and you nailed it! What a great idea and beautifull work. Is that the way real timbers would lie in the corner? Did you use just regular wide pine boards?

Brad, I’ve seen the corners both ways. My goal was so simulate an alternate stack and I thought it would be easier than trying to line up every board. The pine boards are about 11” with a 2” wide rabbit on one side and a 1/2” on the back of the other. I purchased them from a log cabin company, They use them in there kits when some one does not want to use dry wall on interior walls.

Looks absolutely gorgeous…......You did a great job. Is the interior of your cabinets white melamine or did you paint them? I used to use melamine on my cabinets when I had my shop but now use UV plywood.
