    <strong>35760 </strong>The first three folks stated my case. Now, when do we get the correct method/jig?

    Like Stephen said. This video is missing something. If you place the cut face against the jig fence you will not cut anything off the opposite side. The jig shown will only work for tapering two adjoining faces not all for.

    I think I must be missing something, but it seems like your jig works great to do two sides, - i e, you do one side, roll it 90 degrees, cut the next side, but when you roll it again 90 degrees, now your guide is a 1/2" shy, so you don't cut anything?? I presume you must put a 1/2" up at the top end for side 3 and 4?

    If making a four sided taper, after cutting two sides the jig will not register correctly. See the following for how to cut a four sided tapered leg.
