How to Use a Four-Sided Tapered Leg Jig

Duration: 5:04

Tapering your table legs on two sides can be pretty tricky, but tapering all four sides is downright frustrating, so George Vondriska shows you how to build a jig in your shop that will let you cut four sided tapered legs to perfection. A WoodWorkers Guild of America (WWGOA) original video.

    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?

    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.
