This style is used with square or rectangular logs. The corner is cut in a fan-shaped
wedge and interlocks with perpendicular logs.
One log stops where it meets an intersecting log, and the other log extends past

wall. Both logs extend past the corner. This style is favored by many handcrafter's.
A post is found at each corner into which grooves are cut to hold log ends. Looks
similar to post-and-beam construction.
