I believe this is my first post on LJ…. you always remember your first time!!
I am planning a new kitchen table and am having some troubles deciding the best way to create 2 sided tapered 4/4 or legs (shaker legs).
In doing searches most recommend a band saw but unfortunately my shop does not include one nor is it on the radar.
Without being able to make a jig for the table saw which would bog down on this larger stock (Dewalt 7480 10”). I was next thinking of hand planes, but don’t actually have any experience with them or a Draw knife which i have used to strip bark but not to shape anything with precision.
Would a reciprocating saw work to rough dimension?
I was hoping someone with previous experience with this or similar could share your stories.
Tools that are out of the question at this time:
I’m having a hard time figuring this out and it should be easy.
Thanks for the help LJ’s.
