by B. Allan Mackie
This revised and expanded edition has been eagerly awaited. One of the few books on the market we’re aware of that explains the shrink-to-fit saddle notch corner system. The text many of today’s successful builders used to get started in log building. Provides essential advice for both the novice and experienced log builder on financing, blueprints, site planning, timber selection, falling a tree, log storage, notches, hewing, joists and rafters, safety, electrical wiring, foundations, basements and much more. More than 100,000 copies in print. Used as a textbook in many log building schools. B. Allan Mackie and his school(s), are responsible for training many of today’s best Handcrafted, Scribe-fit style log builders. To say I’m “Mackie trained” is a badge of distinction.
