Table Saw Jig

The Pencil Post Bed featured in Woodsmith No. 153 has posts that are over six and a half feet long. This jig makes cutting tapers and chamfers on those legs a whole lot easier. Although the jig is rather large, it's simple to make. You'll find the instructions in the issue. The jig rides along the rip fence of the table saw to carry the leg past the blade. An indexing system makes it easy to rotate the leg precisely to cut both the tapers and the chamfers.
