The plans and instructions are fully detailed and take you through each step. CAD graphics as well as photos provide clear illustration.



When you order your plans, provide the following information:

  • log dimensions: width x height  (6x8, 8x10, etc.) 
              (note that width = wall thickness)
  • gap distance (the space between the logs)


If you are cutting your logs 2 sided and are going to have a variable gap for a more rustic look, let me know. I will need you to estimate the average log height you expect to have (e.g. 6" x 13" for logs that are 6 inches thick and range from 11"-15" in height). 


How to order:

  • Enter your log size and the gap distance in the box below using inches.
    For example: 6x8, 1 inch gap.
  • Click the Buy Now button. 
  • I will make the calculations needed for your jigs and email the necessary dimensions to you, usually within 24 hours.
  • The plans/instructions are in .pdf file format and will be emailed to you. 
  • The cost of the plans is $25 (US)
  • You may pay with paypal or send a check/money order including your email address and log info to Fred Beal, 5520 Black Bear Rd., Helena, Montana, USA 59602
Enter log size (WxH) and gap

Why should I buy plans?


Buying plans saves you time and wasted materials. Would you rather be cutting logs or figuring out geometry? 

When you order plans, tell me the log size and desired gap and I will do the calculations for you.

In less than 2 hours time, you can build your jigs and not waste any time or materials working out the geometry. 

You can be sure your jigs will produce the results you want.
