Step 4. Cutting the roof pieces curtting the roof pieces for a doll's house

The roof pieces that sit on top of the eaves are all cut from 1/2" MDF board.

Below are the drawings of all the individual pieces with both the measurements and the angles.

Note that most of the cuts are compound angle cuts. You will have to set the blade on your circular power saw or bench saw to the required angle for most of the cuts. The angles are given in the drawings below.
There are three different angle cuts required to cut all the roof pieces. They are - a square cut (normal), a 35° of square cut, and a 45° of square cut.

What this means is where it says "angle cut 35° back" in the drawings below, you will need to make that cut with the saw blade on your circular or bench saw tilted 35°. Likewise with the cut that says "angle cut 45° back": you will need to make that cut with the saw blade on your circular or bench saw tilted 45°.
