I made two large sets of Lincoln Logs for some of the older grandchildren. Our kids (their parents) were here this weekend. I showed the logs to the parents and asked if a gift would be OK. I was informed in no uncertain terms that Yes, they would love them. So I guess I will wrap them up for the Holiday. One set is shown in picture #1 and the other is in the box in picture #2.
I used the technique of making a 4 groove log using pine 1×6 boards. These were then cut and shaped to make all the logs. I also made roof gables and roofing boards. There were quite a few steps involved so I used indexing stop blocks and such to make it more safe and repeatable.
I created a blog post which shows more pictures of how I did it.
Thanks for looking,
