Hello All. I got these plans for a light house and its calling for a compound angle on the sides. Is using a taper jig on my table saw the best route for this?

Yes and I would suggest a mock up 1st. Minor adjustments learned in making it will make the final project less frustrating and the final result much better.

Yeah I thought it was the ONLY way as well. The “plans” say to cut the boards, then add the angle. I see NO way of doing that and hold the widths unless I cut the boards oversize a little, but hell then Im cutting them twice.

Going to be a fun project. Going to stand about 4.5 feet.

Yes I will do the mock ups. Thanks for the replies guys
