AW Extra 11/21/13 - Tablesaw Tapering Jig

Tablesaw Tapering Jig

I recently built a pair of garden benches that required several identical parts that were tapered on both sides.To make the job easier, I built this jig that worked for both angles. The two screws make setting the angles quick and precise. On the first cut, the edge of the board rests against the first screw head with the end of the board resting on the second screw.For the second cut, I just flip over the board and move it to the second screw (as shown in the photo), and rest the end of the board against the wood stop block.The toggle clamp holds the board in place during sawing.Once the screws are set you can cut perfect angles all day long.
