I have been busy making some Lincoln logs  for my two youngest grand daughters. I made them some scroll saw puzzles and they play with them all the time . So I thought they would enjoy playing with some Lincoln Logs. They are made 3/4 inch pine and stained with Red mahogany. The notches on the logs were cut on my router table with 3/4 inch straight router bit. Round over with 3/8 round over bit. 20170525_125337.jpg  20170505_122601.jpg  20170506_163904.jpg  20170506_163901.jpg  20170520_144310.jpg  20170520_165729.jpg  20170506_163911.jpg  20170525_123704.jpg  20170525_123626.jpg  20170525_123647.jpg  20170525_125348.jpg

Darn nice, I'm sure at one time or another Lincoln Logs have or will tempt us all to make. The pic showing the table saw/ sled , was that used to cut the middle slots ?

This is great, I have often pondered making these logs. 
Your methods here make it look pretty quick and easy to batch out many logs at a time. 

Cheers

Bucko I just moved my router fence over far enough to cut the middle notches. I have a log with all measurements on it. You could use a dado stack on your table saw, but I thought straight 3/4 router bit made a lot nicer cut. Than all I had to do is clean it up on my mop sander. Mop sander is awesome tool for the woodshop. It is a little time consuming but I usually have two or three projects going at the same time. It was a fun project.

I used table saw sled to cut the length of the logs . I made all the logs with four notches than cut the length. I am not sure but I don't think Lincoln logs are made with four notches?

It's always great to see how other woodworkers do things. Thought you might like to see the router sled that I designed and use to make logs. It will accurately cut up to a six notch piece. IMG_1330.JPG 

Is that a cow in one of the pictures?

Yes I m working on a Bessy the cow. It is about done have to paint it yet . I have plans for Bufford the Bull next. My grand daughters who are 2 and 3 love the Lincoln Logs. That is a really nice setup. I like the idea of being able to cut six notches.

I just stumbled onto this post. I love these logs and had a set when I was a kid-in 1948. That is a pro setup for making the logs. Wow.

Love the log house and the colors you used!! Is it your own design or from toymaking plans?

Thanks for the compliments. Some was my own design and some came from other You Tubers. The colors was what I thought my two grandchildren would like. The roof color is hunter green. I also made some chimneys for the log cabins. Painted them red and the girls really like them. Fun project and great thing is they really like playing with them.

Some plans for you here. 

The instructions are for Shopsmith tools but all you really need is the correct dimensions. You will need a router or dado blade for your saw to cut the dados. You could cut them with hand tools but I don't need that much practice.
