So I built what I think is the best taper jig built by anyone. This one happens to be built by John Heisz, who I am a huge fan of. I am, and have built a few of his projects already. The next one being his box joint jig. But I digress.
This build was really easy after you watch the video here:
You can also download the plans here:
Anyways, I love this taper jig but I have a few things to say about it. Make sure that the smallest runner that you put on the three part runner for this jig is exactly 3/4” tall or it will be hard to taper any plywood without shimming it if it is 3/4” tall. I did this, but it’s just an easy fix by gluing some 1/8” ply to the bottom of the hold down blocks (which wasn’t done in the picture yet). Didn’t really wanna show you my screw up. :) Or you can just sand down the runner until it is 3/4” tall, but I didn’t realize until it was glued in place. UGH…..
So that’s it. I hope you enjoy, and stick around because I will be building a DIY MFT table, a box joint jig, and a miter jig in the near future.
