cutting a 63 degree angle on a 2x8 with a circular saw


Joe,

Thanks for your post here, very helpful. Once the footings are completed I will be framing a irregular/bastard overhang on my patio. It will actually be half a hip roof, not sure what that is called. Anyway the sides will be a 6 pitch and the front will be a 3 pitch. I have it drawn up in CAD and was trying to figure out how to cut the ~67 degree angle where the rafters meet the hip rafter on the 3 pitch. Anyway I know it is slightly off topic but I was wondering if you had any experience with bastard hip roofs. Looking for some guidance on figuring out the hip rafter length. I can get all the other lengths from the cad drawing in 2D, I am not a CAD expert in 3D.

-Mike

Joe, so simple. Have to admit my first thoughts were how to miter it via tilting the blade and cutting on the flat side... but turning the board sideways will get you 2.5" into it on both sides, leaving only an inch or so to finish off w your reciprocating saw. Easy, stable, nothing difficult at all doing it that way. Nice.
