A circular saw with a special blade is the tool of choice for making straight cuts in fiber-cement siding. But what can you use to make cuts with curves? Fine Homebuilding contributing editor Mike Guertin details the options by demonstrating how he uses a carbide scribe, a hole saw, a jigsaw, and nibblers to make curved and round cuts on fiber cement.
