Eric Schramm explains in this concise article how to cut elegantly tapered legs on a jointer. He fits the jointer with stop blocks that are set to the length of the taper and regulate the slope of cut, and explains each step of the process. He offers advice on how to taper the leg from end to end without kickback. He adds information about cutting spade-foot legs and other forms requiring stopped tapers.
