Adjustable Taper Ripping Jig
Three jigs in one. Cut long angle on a workpiece, perfect and consistent tapers, or rip a straight edge on rough-sawn lumber.
A built-in adjustment system allows you to remove the exact amount of material you need to form the desired “footprint” on the bottom end of the leg. Once the jig is adjusted, you can cut four identical tapers in a matter of minutes . And, with two simple hold-downs clamping a workpiece, you can make long, angled cuts safely and accurately. Finally, these same hold-downs can be used when ripping a straight edge on a piece of rough-sawn lumber.

The United States Customary System of Units (USCS or USC), more commonly referred to as the English or Imperial system, is the standard set of units for our plans. It uses inches and feet for measurement. This is the one you probably want if you are in the United States, and it is the one we have traditionally offered on this website.
The International System of Units (SI), more commonly referred to as the metric system, is the alternative set of units that we have available for some of our plans. It uses millimeters, centimeters, and meters for measurement. This is the one you probably want if you are outside the United States. These plans are provided by our business partner, Australian Woodsmith, and are based on the original Woodsmith plan. However, dimensions and other elements of the plan may vary between the metric and standard versions. Be sure to double-check the plan before building.
