The sides look like marblewood. How did you taper the legs so even. You do great work!

Thanks yall. Amagineer- Its really pretty easy. Just make yourself a jig out of plywood for the table saw. Determine how much you want to rip off and make a frame of the plywood that pitches the leg off the side of the plywood at the angle you want. Then set your wood for the leg in the jig and set your table saw to rip the width of your plywood. I use a ten icnch wide jig. Depending on the thickness of your wood you may have to flip the jig over and run it through as well to get a through cut. It will have circle cut marks and it might be uneven but then just zip it through a joiner to get it all even!!
