This is my version of an idea first presented in Fine Woodworking Magazine (Issue #178) by Richard Beebe. This taper jig works like a sled, securely holding your workpiece and keeping your hands safe throughout the cut, even for narrow tapers, such as chair legs. My version is a little different that his. It adjusts equally from both ends of the fence, and will cut wide panels as well as narrow stock.
This basic plan includes a dimensioned cut list and simple drawings so you can see how it goes together. I recommend you also watch the free videos below for additional tips.
- Basic PDF Plans (dimensions, cut list and basic assembly drawings)
- Dimensions: Inches
- Tools required: Circular saw, drill, router
You will NOT receive a paper plan. You will be sent a link to download a digital PDF document that is compatible with most computers and digital devices. You may print it yourself or take it to a printing service. We do not provide 3D Sketchup models or CNC G-code.

I designed a dovetail machine that can be made from wood, and has more features than most of the top of the line commercial versions. This machine is designed to be used with your router to make fast, even, beautiful through dovetail joints that look like you made them by hand. It is micro-adjustable so you can set how tight you want the joint to be, and it allows you to easily change the spacing and size of the tails and pins. It will also make sliding dovetail joints and router dadoes!
The Europeans have had a secret for years- their saws have sliding tops for easy and accurate crosscuts! We can buy attachments for our saws in the US, but they are EXPENSIVE. So why not make your own? This one mounts to the side of your contractor or cabinet saw (for smaller saws, use with the TS Workstation) and includes an adjustable miter fence, even a storage drawer. Great for working with plywood panels!
This lift features an improved tracking mechanism, adjustments are made from above the table using a 1 1/8" socket or wrench, it attaches to a homemade router plate, and will go into almost any router table that has a removable plate. Or you can use it by itself as a stand-alone mini router table! The plans are designed for a standard 3 1/2 - 3 3/4" round, removable router motor.
This fence is truly unique with an innovative locking system that self squares to the blade, a micro adjuster for fine tuning your cuts, and an anti-kick-back European style with detachable extensions. Even the rails are made from wood! It's designed to fit any saw from small, bench top units to large cabinet saws, with or without side tables. There's even a built in pencil & accessory holder! (This project can be used on its own, but it is also designed to fit our deluxe table saw workstation)
