Question Log Cabin wall moulding

Am trying to come up with a way to make a pattern of the horizontal wall logs of my house, as they meet the drywall of the inside walls, so I can cut molding to coutour and block out light and noise from the next room. Have 9' ceilings, so pattern can be made in 2/3 sections, but can't think of anything that will mold then harden to be used as a pattern. Thanks for your help!

Log Cabin,
Could you post some pics? I have seen guys route a groove in the logs to accept the drywall. If your studwalls are up already this wouldn't work to easily. You get a good scribing tool and use a piece of 1/4" luan for your pattern. Tack a strip (3-4" wide) on the wall up against your logs, set your scriber up and trace the pattern onto the luan. Cut it out on the bandsaw and you would have a pattern to work with.

Hi, True North Log Homes has a great book that includes many details that might help you. I don't work for them but have attended one of their workshops at a trade show and they are very knowledgable and consumer friendly [email protected]

This I would do, get a good pattern, and carve away. You can also use heavy cardboard; and just cut with a sharp razorblade. You can usually find for free if you look around. Time and patience.

If you are looking for quality custom log homes in the U.S, Canada or Europe, you should consider Brian Moore Log Homes. They build incredible houses.

The answer to your question will only be as detailed and specific as the question is detailed and specific. Good questions also include a sketch or a photo that illustrates your issue. (:< D)
