Very nice table you made there! Great having dowel joints, too.
Did you make a taper jig for the table saw to make the legs?

I made a one time use taper jig. It was useful but not adjustable. Next time around I’ll make a fully adjustable jig with a clamping system. I have seen a number of nice taper jigs here on LJ. Thanks for taking a look.
