I’ve had a few requests to see a tapering jig being made, and I thought that this design would be best. This particular jig lets you taper the legs of anything from small short legs to big ones like 4×4’s and also make very wide diagonal cuts on things like sheet stock. It also functions as a straight line jig to cut a clean straight rip on a rough edge. Something that a store-bought tapering jig cannot do.
It is a very easy project to make. And one that you can probably build in about an hour. This could save you $75 -$100 or more on a store bought jig.
It is also designed to be made very inexpensively. If you choose to hake the hardwood hold down clamps, and a hardwood strip for the miter bar, you can make this jig for less than ten dollars. If you make it the exact same way that I did mine it will run in the $40-$50 range. That will still save you more than half price, and you will get a larger more usable jig.
