    I'm also interested in this. Has anyone here been to one or know anyone who has? Personal recommendations are always best.

    From my research a while back, B. Allan Mackie seems to be a notable teacher but I can't find any information if he still does it, and I've had no response to email.

    This link will take you to the schools listed at the International Log Builders' Association.

    http://www.logassociation.org/directory/schools.php

    Many years ago I attended a course at the Great Lakes School of Log Building but that would require a trip to MN.

    Robert Chambers has written a very good book on this subject and he also teaches courses periodically.

    Roger's link looks promising for in-state instruction...try to get some references from past students if possible.
