How do you guys layout your gable studs? I'm looking for a way to improve the speed of doing them or general ease. I mark a plumb line with the stud on the rafter trace the angle on the front of the stud. Mark the top line of the stud on the short point. Then I mark in an inch and a half for the rafter thickness cut the angle an inch and a half and hog out an inch and a half the rest of the way up.. I feel this way gives great support plus it has to be plumb as long as you held it plumb when laying it out I'll post a picure tommorrow to help explain.
