Or just shave down the match sticks, just as the real loggers shaved down poles till they fit.

Why bother with matchsticks when scale lumber is readily available?
I just measured a few samples from a box of Diamond Kitchen matches, they vary between .085 and .100 with most being about .094. .094 would approximate an 8 x 8 (actual dimension is about 8.17 scale inches, close enough for government work).
10" x 10" in HO ??? That's a BIG match stick! Most of them are far smaller.
But the cheapest source by far is TOOTHPICKS. They come in a variety of sizes and shapes
e.g. flattened, square, round, and fancy.
