Taper cutting on long boards requires the use of a jig because
long stock will not fit the miter gauge. In addition, it is
basically a rip cut.
Taper cuts are made in long stock (up to 24") for tall flower
boxes, stools and cabinets. They are frequently needed for
table legs and other supports. Tapers on one side only will
give a slanting front to cabinets.
