A horizontal log for scaffolding on a huglekulture. It fit really tight. A tree log was used to smack it in place.

This is the verticals I started with.

Here is the horizontal and my cuts are made in the verticals

Instead of completely guessing for my cuts, I used pencil and paper and placed it in my vertical cuts to make a stencil. I think it helped me make pretty nice cuts and it fit really tight.

This was a fun one and excellent learning experience. The key is to start your notches small and check to see your cuts line up to each other.
Not sure which works better, naturally you'll want to cut into the log the way it lies instead of vertical to the sky or gravity...
I made a vertical cut and Mike made a more horizontal cut. Both seemed to fit snug proving the joinery of this type of building is solid.

At the fall 2019 PEP Jamboree, I added a horizontal log to a Hugelkultur scaffold. This is north of the Fischer Price house, behind the gate.

Thanks to Fred and Josiah for teaching me lots about woodworking and roundwood woodworking on the way to this BB, and also for tolerating my foggi-headedness as I did this while I had a cold.
