Default Taper jig

I just came across this simple, safe taper jig.

It doesn't get much simpler. Think I'll make one. Thanks for sharing, Harry.

If eating carrots improves the eyesight, how come there are so many dead rabbits on the roads?

Looks good but I wonder about the repeatability, like when you're doing table legs. I think a stop to rest the part against that doesn't need to be loosened each time, might be a good addition.

Hey Paul, a person could use double stick tape to make the the stops stay in place. When your through remove the tape and your ready for the next time.

Measure once cut twice and it's still to short.

If you draw your cut lines on the wood, it's quite easy to get good results with a jig like this. When I use mine, I just carefully line up the cut with the edge of the jig where the saw blade will be running along, but I have hot glued some stops to the jig a few times when doing many pieces that were all the same.
