Chambers carefully guides the log builder through every step of constructing a scribe-fit log house, from choosing and preparing the all-important sill logs (base round) through selecting each log for the next round. The rules for log selection that he developed are now used by most professional builders.

There is clear information on the basics of cutting notches, saddles and grooves accurately and efficiently, and thorough treatment of the complex design and joinery in log roofs. This is a comprehensive manual on the craft of log building, well illustrated throughout, with hundreds of drawings and photos.

Softcover, 8 1/2" × 11". This revised 2016 edition, with 286 pages, has been updated with new drawings and color photos, as well as added details on truss construction.
