Got more pallets collected so time to make more Lincoln Logs. Decided it was time to make a jig to speed up the process. I can cut to length and dado all three lengths of logs with this jig. Makes it quick and easy to make the logs now.

I think my daughter would love to build with this type of log.

Are there recomended lengths and diameters. I would like to build her a set.
