Print rafter cutting templates, fold over rafter and cut through.

Birds-mouth Templates

Circular Saw Bevel Setting Hip and Creeper Side Cut Settings If using a Circular Saw or Compound Miter saw, set saw bevel angle to 45° to obtain Creeper and Hip side angles.
With the saw bevel angle set to 45°, cutting hips and creepers at the plumb cut angle will produce correct side angles.
See Saw Miter and Blade Angle Settings

Print full scale templates and fold over wood. Cut through template or place on compound miter saw to set angles.

Optimum Creeper Length?
From the optimum creeper length you can cut 1st + last, 2nd + 2nd last, 3rd + 3rd last etc creepers.
