Dovetail Jig For Log Cabin

HAS ANYONE EVER BUILT A JIG FOR CUTTING DOVETAIL CORNER NOTCHES FOR A LOG HOME ? I HAVE SEEN SOME FOR SALE, BUT THEY ARE VERY EXPENSIVE. I PLAN TO BUILD WITH MACHINED 6x12 LOGS THAT ARE TOUNGE AND GROOVED ON THE TOP AND BOTTOM. I NEED MY LOGS TO TOUCH EACH OTHER ON THE TOP AND BOTTOM SO I WILL NOT HAVE A CHINK JOINT. THE JIGS I HAVE SEEN USE A CHAINSAW FOR THE CUTS. THE CHAINSAW HAS GUIDES ATTACHED TO THE CHAINSAW BAR AND IT RIDES ALONG THE JIG..IF ANYONE KNOW HOW TO LAYOUT A DOVETAIL...SO THE THE LOGS WILL STACK WITHOUT A SPACE IN BETWEEN COURSES ..YOUR HELP WOULD BE GREATLY APPRECIATED !
THANK YOU...B.K.
P.S.{I WOULD LIKE TO USE A FULL / COMPOUND DOVETAIL, NOT A HALF DOVETAIL }

This won't be of much help to you probably but I thought it may be to others.
