Chambers Scribers

***** "ARC" scribers. The V.2 scriber has been a major improvement in scribing logs. And now, introducing the new Arc slider that can be added to all V.2 scribers. It allows you to have an infinte number of pen angles to choose from. You get exactly the "angle of attack" you need.

I have re-designed a log home builder's most important tool from the ground up. These scribers are a huge advance. Based on 30 years of building handcrafted log homes, and teaching others to build.

"Cut It Yourself" -- Handcrafted Log Building
I have invented a way that lets me full-scribe every single log of your log home at my construction yard, and then lets you cut all the notches and grooves at your place -- I call this great log home do-it-yourself kit "Cut-It-Yourself."

Cut-It-Yourself is easier, needs only a few tools, and is very fast for first-time-builders. Cut-It-Yourself is the answer to do-it-yourself log building worries—handcrafted, full-scribe-fit, but much, much easier! Click the link above for more details.
