Tablesaw Tapering Jig

I recently built a
pair of garden
benches that
required several
identical parts
that were tapered
on both sides.To
make the job
easier, I built this
jig that worked
for both angles.
The two screws
make setting the
angles quick and
precise. On the
first cut, the edge
of the board
rests against the
first screw head
with the end of
the board resting on the second screw.For the second cut, I just flip over the board
and move it to the second screw (as shown in the photo), and rest the end of the
board against the wood stop block.The toggle clamp holds the board in place during
sawing.Once the screws are set you can cut perfect angles all day long.
