Off Grid Log Cabin #2: Off Grid Log Cabin: Moving 1000 pound Logs Solo

12-19-2018 04:00 AM by MaxAdvoko | 0 comments »

Hello folks! Back in 2015 during my vacation, I started to build a log cabin using fallen trees at Ladoga Lake. As a side note: I purposefully didn’t chop a single live tree for my cabin construction which made the task more difficult. The task proved to be more difficult than the construction itself. I used extra thick logs for my cabin’s construction. To move wet and heavy logs I used an A-shaped frame with a pulley under its peak.Such leverage and support hoist allows me to...

Off Grid Log Cabin #1: Off Grid Log Cabin: Laying Extra-Thick Logs Solo

12-19-2018 03:47 AM by MaxAdvoko | 1 comment »

Hello folks, Back in 2015 during my vacation, I started to build a log cabin using fallen trees at Ladoga Lake. So, I decided to reclaim those extra-thick logs for my cabin’s construction. I am a practicing lawyer based in St.Petersburg, Russia and can work on this colonization project only during my summer vacation, which is about a month a year. I chose a round notch (also knows as a saddle cope) to join logs in my cabin.To make my cabin stronger I used square wooden stakes to secure...

My Small Log Cabin Workshop #1: The start of my journey into woodworking

01-25-2016 01:28 PM by Jordash | 2 comments »

Hi everyone, I’m very new to lumberjocks and fairly new to woodworking. I intend this blog series to show how I got started and the first projects I took on, which were all about setting up my workshop. Then I hope to update the series each time I update the workshop, which as we all know is a never ending project. I’ll start with a little history, my wife and I converted a van into a campervan. We loved the project and I got bitten by the woodwork bug whilst building the ca...

Log Cabin Sauna

05-16-2013 05:50 PM by fullback27 | 0 comments »

Hello all,Lately I have been thinking about making a cedar log cabin sauna for my cabin in the woods. I was thinking I could some how rig it up with a small wood stove. Anyone have any comments or suggestions to me about this? I am planning on squaring the logs so for it. My cabin is a scribe fit log cabin but I would rather not do that much work just for this sauna. Thanks!

The old time woodshop journals #15: Mr. Ludwigs key and the log cabin

07-24-2012 10:43 PM by jjw5858 | 8 comments »

I always find it amazing that no matter what we plan on any given road in our lifetime there are no guarantees of where you will be or how it will work out…. only that you are here right now and alive. Finding the old angled key dowel the other day from that old trestle table (to help work on my table) woke up some thoughts and visions of many years gone by. I decided to get into my truck soon after that feeling with camera in pocket and take a few snapshots of the cabin where I r...

Carving on the Cartecay #1: - The Setting

07-07-2011 10:01 PM by helluvawreck | 13 comments »

A few weeks back my family had the opportunity to go to my brother’s cabin on the Cartecay River up in north Georgia for a four day weekend. It is a beautiful place to visit and the log cabin has all of the amenities, is very nice, and has ample room for a large family to live in comfort. There is a screened in porch that stretches all the way across the back of the cabin and a stone covered patio on the bottom floor under the porch. The porch and patio have ample furnishings. On the po...

White Pine Log Cabin

08-23-2010 11:44 PM by Mike Chapman | 23 comments »

On July 10, 2010 I began to build my log hunting cabin. It starts with harvesting blown down white pine. We had a horrendous wind storm two years ago that left millions of board feet of timber in ruins. We put some it to good use. Go to my website and navigate to “Work-In-Progress”. There you will see the White Pine hunter’s cabin being created from logs, to lumber, to rough cabin, and finally, to finished cabin. I’m building the log cabin right outside of my woo...
