In a few hours, you can build an adjustable jig for making a wide range of angled cuts on your table saw.
Cutting tapers at the table saw usually involves making a quick, one-use jig. This jig offers a permanent and flexible solution. This jig can be adjusted to cut two and four-sided tapers in almost any size leg. A side benefit to the adjustable features of the jig is that it allows you to tackle other tough cuts, like safely ripping a straight edge on rough-edged lumber.

Similar Woodsmith Plans
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.
All of the information that you need to build our plans can be found in the standard plan. However, if you want even more granular detail to make your job easier, you should consider our premium plans. These come with additional shop diagrams that we drew when creating the prototypes. Shop drawings are not available for every plan.
