    Generally, No, but the oscillating tools available now are making that a lot easier

    Rarely, because if it's wrong you just bought some very expensive firewood.

    This.

    The general "rule" is that we don't. In fact, I've refused to do it once, even when asked, because I wasn't 100% sure I'd get it right. Bring the carpenter back into the room.

    That said, I've successfully done it many times, also.

    Generally we do not cut them if the carpenter is on the job since it's his work.

    "You touch it, you own it" is the general rule.
