Square Cuts on Round Footing Forms

I tape two or three full pages of newsprint end-to-end to make an elongated sheet, then wrap the sheet around the footing form, matching the edges of the sheet as they meet around the cylinder

After I tape the end of the newsprint to itself, I slide one edge of the newsprint to the cut point and mark my straight line along the edge of the newsprint.

A foot-long section of a footing form cut cut from the factory end and slit lengthwise makes a good template. Use the factory end for scribing the cut line.
