DVDs
Building Log Walls

Robert teaches you the techniques you'll need to succeed at building your own log home.

As they say: "You can't learn how to dance by looking at still pictures of people dancing."

Get the videos and see me cutting, scribing, and more. I feel confident that my DVDs put people about one year ahead on their log cabin projects. One year ahead—that's pretty darn good for $90.

3x DVD discs -- ~ 5 hours of video. See them in Robert's WEBSTORE.

ALL 5-Star reviews at Amazon —customers agree-- "The BEST log home DVDs ever! "

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.
