Simple Tapering at the Tablesaw

I was working on an outdoor seating project recently that called for tapering some 34"-thick boards. I own a tapering jig, but it wasn’t big enough for the job. So, to make the cuts, I used a straight-edged board to serve as a guide against the rip fence. After marking out the taper on a workpiece, I used double-faced tape to attach on the guide board, aligning its fence-bearing edge parallel to my cutline. (If marring the workpiece isn’t an issue, you can use nails instead.) At that point, it was a simple matter of ripping to the cutline in the usual fashion.
