I would like to see some pics of the houses without chink. That is how my wife and I want to  do ours next spring using the sill seal and no chink. Finding  plans on a dove tail jig for this set up is hard.

On youtube there are many illustrations of dove tail fixtures and how to's, just about anything you would need to see, even saddle joints with explanations, fascinating stuff to look at and study while forming so of your own ideas.     
only have a few chain saws I'm not suppose to use, but will at times, one dog Dolly, pretty good dog, just not sure what for yet,  working on getting the gardening back in order, and kinda thinking on maybe a small bbq bizz,  thinking about it,

Me too Outer Rondacker. That is what my son wants to do. I found  some videos on youtube, but I need  some specific  plans like angles and the best size log to use. This is going to be a very fun project.

Drobertson I have looked around on YT and still have yet to find the plans-angles of the dove tail cuts for 8wx12tall. The few I have found showing builds are not of flat sitting with no space or chink gap walls.  I will keep up the search and learning but please if you have links or good vids by all means share them. Thanks

I'm not sure what the issue is but here is a step by step process laid out for posting pictures.
It really only takes less than a minute to post a photo after you've done it a few times.
The picture posting procedure is not going to change here.  The reasons for that have been mentioned many times over.

I'm sure it wont change but that does not make it easyer.
I might be the different operating systems that makes it hard.
I don't like changes and I'm still using XP.
I can not load more than one picture at a time and lots of times it errors out.
I learned the hard way to copy my post before I hit the post button or I might loose everything.
I think one part that the new people have problems with is that they need to make a folder first
to put there pictures in. And there needs to be a message telling people that and telling them
that they need to open or choose that folder before uploading.
I know this has been talked about many times but I think talking about it helps the newbees.

We have members who post pictures on their 1st and second post.
Some people don't like to read instructions so then videos are made to show step by step.
The third and 5th time they spend complaining about it gets old because they don't want to read the directions.  Hundreds of hours have been spent trying to make things easy only to get criticized on how it should be done.
Then the next new member comes and has a different way and things should conform to the way they like to do it and your way will be wrong.

In spite of some feeling I'm a complete moron, I've successfully posted pictures in the past. I've also failed to get pictures posted in the past. I am not a moron (with a doctorate) and am pretty good at following instructions. I'm happy to hear that others, some first timers were able to post pictures. That makes all the difference to me.   >:(

 Just for fun, I will carry this hijacked thread one more step,, posting pics is easy, real easy, follow the directions, much like building a wally world piece of crap shelf from china,, once you get it it all makes sense,  just dont go too fast and strip out anything ;D or stress out anything ;D
