  I am a semi-retired cabinetmaker from Texas. A few years back I started building log furniture. After looking at was  available on the market in the way of tools for building log furniture I was not impressed. I designed and built a machine just for building log furniture. It functions as a sawmill(22"diax98" length), a large capacity lathe(10"diax108" length), a large capacity mortise machine(24"x 96" bed, 14" vertical stroke), and a large capacity drill press(24'x96" bed, 14" vertical stroke. I designed it to be cheap and easy to build using "off the shelf" components and parts. I offer a lease of my blueprints for prospective builders. It allows the use of mass production principles and techniques, in what is otherwise a very "one off" medium. I would appreciate any comment or opinions(even the negative ones).
