Sometimes fancy works, or is called for. But for doing something I don't plan to do again, simple and free is best. I slide that jig up against the end of the board and use it to guide my SkilSaw. Once I'm done cutting all the siding for both gable ends of the shop, that jig (minus the deck screws) will join the rest of the scrap in Denise's burn pile.
Glad it might be helpful to you in a future project.
