of a framing square, a simple method of laying out the side cut for
a 45-degree hip or valley rafter is as follows.
Measure back on the edge of the rafter from point A of the top
cut, as shown at left in Figure 12-34. Distance AC is equal to the
thickness of the rafter. Square across from C to B on the opposite
edge, and scribe line AB, which gives the side cut. At right in Fig-
ure 12-34, FA is the top cut, and AB is the side cut. The plumb and
side cuts should be made at the same time by sawing along lines FA
and AB to save extra labor.
This rule for laying out hip side cuts does not hold for any angle
other than 45 degrees.
