Log Cabin V3

I thought it was time to revisit the Log Cabin design. I’ve made a few little improvements and design changes. These have a thicker base and roof and more internal volume.

 

Specs:

  • Timber: Cypress
  • Timber Thickness: 35mm
  • Design: Log Cabin – OATH Dimensions 280 x 200mm
  • Internal Volume:  TBA
  • Brood Supports: 10mm Cypress cross bars
  • Separator Plate: Clear Acrylic
  • Coating: Stain & Marine Grade Clear Gloss

 

Making up the frames. These are using the standard OATH dimension of 280mm x 200mm, with a 15mm over hang for the log ends…

The first version of the Log Cabin is pictured below beside the new frames – top left of photo…

The new roof is now 35mm thick. I routed each piece before gluing them all together as a wide slab. pictured front center…

Below – I cut the roof “slab” in half to create two pieces with a 30 degrees cut. The top frame also has a section cut off it at 30 degrees to accept the roof angle…

Below – Frames routed with a round edge to get the log effect and fixed together. Roofs are all fixed together…

Below – Stained and gloss coated. The original log cabin is pictured left.
