Scribing Logs

Scribers help to transfer the shape of one log onto the other. This allows for very accurate cuts and makes logs fit very tightly together. We are going to build a chinked handcrafted log home. Our logs will have places where they touch and don't touch for the length of the log. This is what I'm practicing here. Full scribed handcrafted log homes don't have chinking and the logs touch for the full length of the log.
