Halved Bridled and Squinted Scarf Joint

Looks a lot easier in the books! Thought I would try it out to make the 18 foot top log I needed for the cabin. A challenge but good experience.

With the rough cuts made it was time to test fit and saw the kerf for a tight fit then cut the bridled ends.
The Squint was then laid out and knifed in on the pieces. With the final cuts made it was time to assemble and pin the joint together. Mission accomplished!

After a nice lunch of fried meatloaf and potatoes I'll go to work on the front 18 footer. Maybe I'll do a Half Scarf - Bladed joint for this one.

  1. I like that a lot. Your be able to tell when you have any other craftsmen visit as they will be the ones who point it out to you!
