Not really staves but I am looking for a safe and true way of cutting pieces about 8 to 10” long on a tablesaw. I want to be able to use either 4 or 6 or 8 pieces to make a cylinder. So what I am looking to do is cut lengths of wood with both sides with the appropriate angles. Not sure what they call these but they would look like a stave but not a compound angle. Anyone have suggestions for a safe easy accurrate method??? Thanks

If they aren’t tapered ripping them is not less safe than ripping
90 degree edges on the table saw. I would just use a fence
and a push stick. You can use featherboards too.

Try this to see if this is what you are looking for.

I believe there are also router bits that will perform this function.
Found one version of it.

I try not to change the angle on my TS as it is old and difficult to get back to perpendicular so I use a router bit in my RT and get much better results.

I use one bit quite a lot it id 11.25 degrees (Eagle America #152-1105 = 11-1/4° x 1”) and I would have a hard time setting my TS to that accuracy … not that I am going to get that precise and angle on long stock but I don’t have to worry about compounding the error with a bad angle on my TS.
