Easy-To-Build Table Saw Taper Jig

By: Phil Huber
Cutting tapers at the table saw usually involves making a quick, one-use jig. This jig offers a permanent and flexible solution, and it goes together in just a few hours in the shop.

Get the step-by-step plans to build this Taper Jig from WoodsmithPlans.com.

Building this taper jig couldn't be easier. All you need to get started is a few pieces of 3/4" plywood and some common hardware like T-track, threaded knobs, and hold-down clamps.


This jig can be adjusted to cut two and four-sided tapers in almost any size leg. A side benefit to the adjustable features of the jig is that it allows you to tackle other tough cuts, like safely ripping a straight edge on rough-edged lumber. You can find out more about that feature in the article here.
