Corner Systems Compared
Although corner systems are based on owner's desire aesthetically, sometimes the profile of the log dictates the corner connection.
 

Dovetail Corner, "D" Style Profile
The 12” Appalachian style log lends itself to the dovetail corner system. However, the dovetail corner can be utilized for the “D” profile as well. Our dovetail is a hand-crafted full dovetail to cause the corner to be structural in that when the logs are stacked the corner cannot shift.

Saddle Notch Corner, Full Round Profile
The saddle notch corner fits the full round or double D best. It is notched to fit over the adjoining log. A D log can also use this corner system. This is a structural corner.

Mortise and Tenon Corner, "D" Style Profile
Our “butt and pass” corner is made structural by the use of mortise and tenon. The male and female connection gives a smoothly defined inside corner with the traditional stockade exterior desired by so many.

  Post
Post corners are an option for those who prefer no corner application. These are a great transition point for porches or an attached breezeway and garage. This is the typical joinery for interior corners.
