Toy Log Cabin Plans

Remember lincoln logs? Of course you do. Well, if you are waxing nostolgic, you can build your own set of logs and a project that can be used for a toy log cabin. This project is great for a child’s toy, a holiday decoration, or a decorative building for a train set.

The project is one that is not too difficult and is from the people who make the Shopsmith Woodworking System.

  • 1-notch log 3/4 x 3/4 / 1-1/2
  • 2-notch log 3/4 x 3/4 / 4-1/2
  • 3-notch log 3/4 x 3/4 / 7-1/2
  • 4-notch log 3/4 x 3/4 / 10-1/2
  • 5-notch log 3/4 x 3/4 / 13-1/2
  • 6-notch log 3/4 x 3/4 / 16-1/2
  • Other lengths add 3″ per notch
  • Roof Trusses 3/4 x 1-3/4 x 6
  • Chimney 3/4 x 1-3/8 x 1-3/8
  • Roof Slats 1/8 x 3/4 x (variable lengths)

With this kind of project, there is no limit to the size of the project.  You could make enough logs to build a small village.   Working with a smaller project is a great way to hone your woodworking skills.  As the scale of a project shrinks, the margin of error shrinks with it.

Good luck and have fun!

    I would like to build a log picnic shelter, 24’x24′. I have all the logs that would be needed, already have them peeled. I just need to know how to build this shelter.
