Won't bother me a bit if the thread takes a different direction, they almost always do. Great looking cabins posted up. I like the cordwood cabin, I came very close to building one of those. That might make for a great addition as an arctic entry.

An old log cabin me and some buds stayed in on a spring bear hunt. You can see we were a little early for the bears to be poking out. This pic was taken forty years ago up the Placer River just south of Anchorage.

Made a great score on eBay. I was looking at a reproduction door latch to keep things as rustic as I could on my cabin. I had a door built as some of you may have seen and went casting about to find an old thumb latch to go along with it. I found a site that made hand forged hinges and latches and was about to pull the trigger on it when eBay crossed my mind. Sure enough, I found just what I was looking for at a third the price and it's a period piece of hardware. One small victory for mankind. I'm tickled pink. Now I need to find some screws.

The stackwood looks nice.
Is it hard to do to make it look smooth like that?

I've built more than I can really remember. Over 20 for sure. Have one more planned, then hope to never build another.

Nice looking work, yukon. Did you use a drawknife or a bark spud to peel your logs? I used a bark spud.

In the early days I used a drawknife to peel the logs, then again to take the cambium layer off. Then I got smart and bought a curved shoe power planer. Still used the drawknife to peel the bark, but the planer made the rest easier.

Looks like you milled your logs top and bottom? I did on mine. My long wall is thirty feet so I was dealing with logs thirty-six feet long all by myself. I used a gin pole to get the logs up. I used block and tackle which gave me that four to one advantage. I still had to enlist my tractor at times.

I just checked my gallery on my phone. Apparently I haven't taken any good pictures of the cabin since the new phone. I will take some and forward them along hopefully this afternoon when I make it home.

Looks a lot like the one I have except mine has a wood handle. What species of tree did you guys use? I used spruce and fir but if I were to do it again I'd use tamarack.
