    I don't think the OP has his boards lined up correctly.

    ]Slice is working to a large degree, on 3 of my corners. I tried this on the last corner and am told that "Slicing plane does not intersect 6 selected solids". I studied with 2005 version and these 2012 commands are all new to me. Trying to get a grasp on some of it! I am making progress, as slow as it seems. Thanks for any help!

    You'll have to relocate the slicing plane up or down as the case may be.

    I still don't think the boards will meet up the way you want unless you have already made the correction.

    Post a close up image of one of the corners.

    Is this a residence?

    Returning to the original question, as trimming two solids. You can copy one solid in top of itself and use the Subtract command-as showed previously. Other way: use the Interfere command and ask for intersection solid (just follow the command prompt). You can subtract that solid from the cylinder.
    It's nice to be nice, but sometimes is nicer to be evil!
    Tip: Please do not PM or email me with CAD questions - use the forums, you'll get an answer sooner.
