Project Information

I chose to make this one from the Woodsmith 'Shop Notes' magazine as it offered more features for doing tapers.

Rockler does have one that is similar, but at $80, I chose to make my own.

I think the plan I have is better than the Rockler one. More features and 4 fence knobs instead of just two, as the Rockler has.

I already had most the materials. If I had to buy them all, then you may be approaching the cost of the one from Rockler. But as woodworkers, if we want it better, and as a part of the craft and joy, is in making your own jigs.

I like the additional fence knobs in your design. I have the Rockler jig and it flexes to an annoying degree right where you have added the additional knobs. Nice work.

Here's mine, I added pvc with plastic tubing to fit around bolts to fill in pvc to remove slop so the knobs are raised up to be out of the way of hold downs and end stop.
