Build it Yourself: Linkin’ Logs
At the holidays, nothing is more heartfelt than a handmade gift, but coming up with the right idea for the log home lover in your life can be a challenge. Transport them back to sweet childhood memories with your own custom set of Linkin’ Logs, courtesy of our sister publication Woodsmith and woodsmithplans.com.
The plans call for inexpensive poplar wood for the logs and plywood for the doors and windows. The pieces are a touch oversized, making them easier to handle. Unlike other projects we’ve featured, this one requires no assembly on your part — you literally just make the components and let your “builder” recipient try his or her hand at erecting a mini log cabin home. Detailed instructions for notching and cutting are provided. We give you the highlights of the plan here, then direct you where to go to download the complete schematics for FREE!
And when you’re all done, you’ll have an even greater appreciation for the folks who make full-sized log cabins.
