I just finished these up for my granddaughter for Christmas. Of course I had to test them a bit before wrapping them. There are almost 400 pieces…but I discovered I need to make a few more roof slats and some more 1-notch logs. I made a modified version of “Jim Steinbrecher’s jig to mill the logs. “Check out his youtube channel. It was invaluable…thanks Jim. He dadoed his logs one at a time…I made my jig to handle 1×6’s…dadoed them in 3 foot lengths, ripped them to width, routed the 4 corners, and then cut to length. My roof gables have v-notches so as to look like logs stacked on top of one another. They are made from common 3/4 pine and left unfinished.
I have been told by several co-workers that you can buy these at the store…..hmmm…they just don’t get it.
Merry Christmas everyone.
Thanks for looking.
