Great Job. My grand nephew is wanting me to make him a fort. He is crazy over Civil War stuff.

I grew up with Lincoln Logs and this is way cool. One thing I’ve is scrap, and this is a great way to use it.

Great job and a great idea. I was thinking about making Lincoln Logs for my nephew and I tried it with dowels and the router and a jig. It didn’t work well at all. Now I see I should have used square “logs” (with rounded corners) and a dado set.
Thanks for sharing

Nice work. I too make them from scraps. I’ve probably made over 2000 pcs so far. (the kids/grandkids made a 6 foot tall Twin Towers one time). Make bunches!! The kids/grandkids will all love them! This is truly a timeless toy for all. I cut all my cross grooves with dado blade on wide stock on my radial arm saw then rip to square on table saw and run them through the router table to round the edges slightly. I made a ‘story stick’ from a piece of laminate flooring that includes a ‘one-sy’, ‘two-sy’, ‘three-sy, and ‘four-sy’ size of log for easy replication and layout. Loads of fun have been had with the logs.

Can you or drbyte provide some guidance in making these? It’s been 50 years since I built with or even looked at lincoln logs. I’d like to do the same thing with all my scrap.
