Log Cabin Secrets, Book 2: Advanced Mitered Joinery
This book is also available at Amazon and Apple book stores as an eBook.
LOG CABIN SECRETS: Advanced Mitered Joinery.
THIS BOOK INCLUDES:
Step-by-Step instructions for the log-to-log joinery to make beautiful log roof trusses, log accents, and log post-and-beam structures.
Mitered joinery is naturally strong, and naturally good-looking. in the past, though, it has required "lofting" —a fussy and demanding process that requires a huge, strong, flat, level work surface: a surface as big as the truss being built. Few people have a lofting deck, so using mitered joinery was out of their reach. . . .
Now, thanks to my advancements to mitered joinery, you can produce these structures with as few tools as a chalkline and a small piece of MDF for a table.
In this book I teach the basics of how to choose good logs, snapping the lines on the logs, and then laying out the cut-lines for each joint. I offer you three layout methods: Simple Angle; Storyboard; and Spreadsheet. You choose the method that you like, and that suits your project.
My Storyboard Method is new to log construction—and it is a very simple, and powerful tool. The Storyboard has never appeared in print until now (though I have used it during my hands-on workshops).
43 pages; more than 150 illustrations. Full color graphics and photos on every page.
Clearly written. Even the complex techniques are easy to understand. Hundreds and hundreds of color drawings and color photos to help.
Metric and Feet-Inches for all important dimensions. English language.
The eBook is in "replica" format—meaning it looks identical to a printed paper book. The PAPER copy (from Amazon only) is full-size and full-color.
