    Who uses tenon saws?? Yeah, its slightly neater but i dont like using
    them… I prefer to use the 22″ panel saw. I havent used a tenon saw in ages

    your eaves (or overhang) is cut afterwards with a stringline and a
    level,not a chalkline and a bevel.its way more accurate.

    Thanks for the comments people, but this video is meant for beginners to
    get an idea of setting out and cutting a rafter. Pre-apprentices and
    apprentices who don’t do it much at work, and the odd handy man, perhaps.
    Yes, it is a model house and things would obviously change a bit on site.
    Hopefully it’s been helpful to some people.

    This was a great video. Are you building models for future home owners or
    are you building doll houses? I really admire anyone who can build a roof
    using the stick built method. It seems like 90% of roofs built today are
    built with pre-fab trusses. My hat goes off to you.

    Very good for beginners (like me) please put it in context and build a
    model roof explaining the tables you use for getting the length of rafters
    hips and valleys … look forward to seeing more

    wow what a waste of time, just use a framing square or if youre making
    models only a speed square it’s 1 tool and will take half as much time. I
    cant believe how much extra work went into making that 1 single rafter. I
    build real houses and in those 6 minutes I would have built 2 or 3 full
    sized rafters.

    Thank you for the video – I am a complete novice and found it very helpful
    to build my kid’s treehouse.

    _all this video for just one angled cutting? WTF?and next what you are
    going to use it for? next you are going to tell us how to hold a hammer and
    thrust a nail? do you know how to use a toothpick and what is it for? sorry
    pops, but this videos are so retarded kinda snail learning pase, and needs
    more direction! every body can find out how to use a drop saw, and cutting
    out rafters! explain this in a process while yo get to build something more
    functional and elaborated that would make it
