Iâ€™m having a little trouble designing a curved hip and flared eaves on this Dutch Hip roof Iâ€™ve drawn. Iâ€™m looking to do something kind of like pic A.
You can see in pic 4 what Iâ€™m trying to do, adding curved cleats to the top of the hip and those two jacks. Well, Iâ€™m having a hard time drawing them accurately, and probably will have as hard a time cutting the actual pieces accurately too, so that everything planes in correctly.
I was wondering if anyone has used a different technique for getting the curve and flare ?
Iâ€™ve researched this in quite a few books of traditional Japanese and Chinese Roof Construction and, itâ€™s too complicated doing it that way!
