I was lost without the picture of the jig but no surprise there. I'd certainly submit that to the woodworking magazines. Thanks for posting it.

I could be wrong, but I assume that it is fed so the thin edge comes through the planer last? I think I would use my drum sander,which I use with a sled often, but never tried a taper, I am glad you posted that.

Herb,

You are correct. Thin edge was first. After planing, I used sled on drum sander to get smooth. This could have been done completely on drum sander, but planer completed job faster. To get thin edge down from 1/8” to about 1/16”, I used a palm sander

Nice job. Ive made a number of them. Every relative has one.
Once you have the taper sled made, it doesn't take that long to make a great present.
Good project to use scraps on.
You can tell a mans planer size, by the size of his peal !

Herb asked if the thin end entered the planer LAST. Your reply was "yes, the thin end enters FIRST".
I'm confused. Which end should enter the planer first?

Great Project.
Thanks

Mike,

Sorry for the confusion. I misread Herb’s question. My reply was correct. I put the thin end in first. I also used very light passes. The handle end has a screw through the hole to keep the paddle from moving on the sled. I also went back to the article to be sure this was the recommended procedure.
