« Part 3: First glue up Part 4 of Rocking Horse series Part 5: Tapered legs »

I was able to get the project one more night after work this past week and do some more band saw work. Saturday was spent making the rockers. I first jointed and glued up a 16” by 46” panel of ambrosia maple. While the glue set I made a circle cutting jig with a 40” radius to form the rockers. The jig worked well I am pleased with the way the rockers came out.
The next jig I need to make is to add a taper to the top of the legs so that they will fit at an angle to the horse. Looking for some ideas for this jig.
