Simple Tapering at the TablesawComments (0)
This article is from Issue 43 of Woodcraft Magazine.
I was working on an
outdoor seating project recently that called for tapering some 3⁄4"-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.
