Draw any line k /, at right angles to a e, the bafe of the hip rafter, to cut it in any point h, put the.foot of your compafs in h, as a centre, and with the other defcribe a circle to touch af the hip rafter, to cut the bafe line a e, at g; then draw g i and g k; then the angle k g i will be the backing of the hip, as is ihevvn by the bevel at; but the belt way to work the hips is to apply a bevel to the parallel fides of the hips, as is ihewn at C, by making the other fide of the bevel parallel to a e, the bafe of the hip. Note.
