Making an end table and needed to taper the legs. I tried the one I bought from woodcraft butt, I just cant get used to it. So I built this. Thanks for looking!

Good Job. This style of tapering jig works much better than the V style. V style is hard to control.

Yeah, I bought one of those too…..it belongs in the junk pile. Thank you for the motivation to replace it with a better solution! This looks perfect!

I usually taper on the band saw, but this looks a lot better than the V style jigs. I may put this on the ‘jig list”

Thanks for posting

There is not much more satisfaction than making your own jigs. It looks great. And I like the idea of the T-tracks without shopping for aluminum ones. Thanks for posting. This is very inspiring.

Question: I don’t see any stop block at the back? Am I missing something?

Best,

Serge

does that have a runner for the miter slot or do you just run it against the fence?
