Hip Rafter Plumb and Side Cuts


Print, fold over hip and cut through paper template, or cut Red Line, fold and mark hip for cutting.



Circular Saw Bevel Setting Hip and Creeper Side Cut Settings If you're using a circular Saw or Compound Miter Saw, set blade bevel angle to 45° for correct Creeper and Hip side angles.
With a 45° bevel on the saw, cutting at the plumb cut angle of ° will produce the correct hip side angles of °



It can be difficult to visualize rafter plumb and side cut angles and how the Common, Hip and Creeper rafters all fit together.

To make it easier, before you start to measure, mark and cut, print these templates, fold over some scrap wood (same size as rafters) and cut through the paper to form the correct plumb and side cuts for Common, Hip and Creeper rafters.

You can now see how each piece fits together to form the correct angles.
You can also use the test piece to set your compound miter saw.

If you use the Template buttons on the Hip Roof Framing Calculator pages, these rafter templates will open with the correct dimensions from the current calculation.

Guide Only Ensure your printer scale is set to 100%. (Not 'Shrink To Fit')

DON'T BREATH THE DUST If you're cutting concrete, stone or ANYTHING and there's DUST - DON'T TAKE THE RISK
Don't cut it, or cut it wet so there's NO DUST - Silicosis Sucks

How should we spell it?
