Built this taper jig to replace my old one which I felt was dangerous (last picture is old one). I used 18mm baltic birch ply for the bottom and 11mm for the mitre bar. The fence is made of cherry, the handle is walnut and the hold downs are ash. All were just scraps lying around.
I used my slot mortiser http://lumberjocks.com/projects/101724 to make all the slots. The bolts are 1/4” carriage bolts with the sides ground down to fit into the slots. One coat of water base finish and then I sprayed on glide coat to make it slide better.
It is 30” x 10”.
