First post here, relatively new to the field.

I'm trying to make a set of kitchen chairs, but the back legs are giving me fits. They're 1 piece of wood that tapers back starting at the seat. Here's an image I found that's similar:
Font Parallel Slope Rectangle Drawing

I built a tapering jig and I can cut the open side of the angle no problem, but I'm having issues trying to figure out the best way to cut the inside taper on a table saw because the reach of the blade will gouge the bottom half an inch or so.

Any advice? Best I can come up with is to stop each cut about an inch short and finish the rest out by hand, but I'm afraid it will not look good.

Any help would be much appreciated!
