The Log Castle Jake Maier · December 28, 2018 · Working in a log home definitely ups your scribe game! In this instance a interior wall finished with barn wood, butted into a log exterior wall leaving a large void in the corner between them. As all the walls in this custom home are either exterior log walls or interior walls finished with tounge and groove pine or barn wood, every where a wall meets a ceiling or another wall, trim needs to be applied in order to cover the gaps. In most areas a trim piece was fabricated using 1×2 pine; single, vertical pieces were used to cover inside corners and multiple pieces were used to construct custom trim pieces for outside corners, soffits, etc. in this situation, the void, or gap, was too large for a piece of 1×2 to cover, so the solution was to use a piece of the barnwood and scribe it to the exterior log wall. To do this, i started with a template piece of scrap plywood and tacked it onto the wall using a couple bead nails. I then used a large compass, or scribing tool, to transfer the profile of the logs to the plywood. I cut the profile out with a jig saw, then repeated the process until I was happy with the fit. Next, I set the template on top of a piece of barn wood already cut to size, and traced the lines. Finally, I cut those lines with a jig saw, cleaned them up with sand paper and a sanding block, and installed it.
