A Full-scribe (scribe-fit) log home is truly handcrafted. These home are built by hand one piece at a time with a log crafter fitting each and every naturally-shaped piece together. They are notched where they overlap at the corners, and there are several ways to notch the logs.
In the flat-on-flat method, logs are flattened on the top and bottom and then stacked (usually with butt-and-pass corners).

The saddle notch has a curved semi-circular scribe at each end of the log, this allows it to fit perfectly to the log below and form the corner.
Typically seen on square, hewn, or chink-style logs. A dovetail joint is cut on the end of a log, where it would rest in a corner—one to the right and one to the left; this creates a tight, interlocking corner. Handcrafted dovetails can be “full dovetail” (notch surface slopes in two directions simultaneously) or “half dovetail” (notch surface slopes in one direction).

Unscribed (or milled) logs butt up against each other at the corners without notching
