Wow, Guys I’m truly sorry for not returning to this before now. I’m about to start on this project and appreciate the input, but I have some more questions.
I have a metal tapering jig which I bought many years ago and I don’t think that it would work for this since it comes to a point and the jig has no way to hold the stock in place on the final cut I would have nothing to support the piece to.
Also this thing is designed to cut the taper at the bottom of the jig if I could make so the cut was made at the top then I could rest the extra material against the stop.
Please remember your dealing with a novice when it comes to these types of things, so any pics of the actual jigs or fixtures you guys are being so kind as to post would be VERY helpful. Thanks again and sorry for loosing track of this thread they go by sooo fast.Pat
Is this the option for doing this on the miter saw you were talking about cabmaker?

If so again how do I support this to make the final cut?
