I'll second Bruce's comment.  The Moss kit comes with the parts pre
cut so that they will fit against each other as they should.  They
specially made thick washers would take effort to dublicate.  If you
are going to make your own parts it will take time and probably a few
re-makes.  Roger Moment's instructions come with it and are very
detailed (and of course based on a lot of experience).  If you are
going to try to cut Hardi panels of any sort you will create a lot of
cement dust and dull blades, and possibly a saw motor worn out by the
abrasive dust.  Getting inside corners and rectangular slots just
right can be challenging, too. Having cut a couple of hundred feet of
Hardi siding I speak from experience.  Just saying.
