    Default Best way to cut radius on house battens

    Hi guys,

    Just working on putting new 42x42 battens on the front of my house. As you can see in the attached, the palings/battens underneath are cut on a radius. What's the best way to achieve this - and what tool would be best (again, given I'm using 42mm thick battens, not 19ish mm).

    Default thought would be to make a jig/guide and run a jigsaw around that (after fitting them) - but not sure that's the beat way to go about it.

    Yep, ply/masonite guide, mark with pencil, then jig saw.
    Couple of clamps to hold the guide in place while marking.
