Another taper and edge straghtening jig. This one works surprisingly well. My last one (from years back) is a lot more rustic to say the least. This one is a dream to use. To use the jig, I actually walk the jig around the side of the tablesaw, holding it against the fence. The test tapered leg you see here is a short length of pine cut from a 2×4. I’m looking forward to using it on some mahogany to built a shaker table soon. Hopefully it will turn out nice enough to post here. Plans based on the ones I found on woodworkingtips.com site (modified significantly). In particular its much much wider to be able to put straight edges on wavy sided boards. This also allows a greater degree of safety. I may add another handle to the front side ot the jig. Picture shows how the handle is made using a T-Nut.
All comments welcome.
