Log Corners

Dovetail:

As one of the oldest types of joinery systems, the Dovetail corner gives a log home a rustic early American look. Even though it has been traditionally used with square or chinked Appalachian-style logs, the Dovetail corner has gained popularity with the “D” shaped profiles. Dovetail corners give a log home one of the tightest locking joints available. Dovetails may be precut at the mill or cut at the jobsite with a dovetail jig.

Saddlenotch:

A saddlenotch corner is often used when trying to join full round or double “D” logs. A rounded notch is cut so that the top log will tightly fit the diameter of the log below. Saddlenotch corners give the appearance of a rustic, handcrafted log home. Saddlenotch cuts may be precut at the mill or cut at the jobsite with a jig.

Butt & Pass:

The Butt & Pass corner system is often the most popular style used due to its traditional yet modern appearance. The Butt & Pass corner is usually constructed by a mortise and tenon joint where two logs meet and one log extends past the other intersecting log. Butt & Pass corners are typically the least expensive method of corner notching. This type of corner system is notched on the job site by your builder.
