I call any taper that cannot be accurately cut on the table saw a micro taper. Usually anything under 1 degree. The taper I needed to cut was 0.2 degrees, so the only tool for the job was the jointer. The process was pretty simple. I needed to taper 1/16” over an 18-inch length. I made a 1/16” spacer and raised my jointer to a 1/16” cut. I placed one end of the panel on the spacer and ran the panel through the jointer. As the front edge of the panel hits the knives, the jointer is making the full 1/16” cut. The cut becomes shallower and shallower as the back corner – supported by the spacer – approaches the jointer blade. Once the first pass is complete, the taper is set and subsequent jointing can take place without the spacer. I hope this little tip helps those of you out there when trying to precision-fit your panels!
