Not enough information.

Are you talking about something like a table leg?

If so, you could use a table saw and make a tapering jig.

Depends on the width of the board.

You could use a band saw but unless you have a riser kit installed you will be limited to something around 6”. You could use the table saw but again, depending on how high you can raise the blade.

If you have a planer, you could make a jig to run the wood thru with one end higher than the other to form the taper. this would work for a wider board.
