Step 6: Build a Breakfast Booth Bench
Build a jig for tapered cuts
Since the seatback of this bench is sloped for comfort, it requires a series of parts cut with a taper. Author John White shows you how by making a simple, adjustable jig. After attaching small blocks to a flat board, stock is attached and fed through a tablesaw. This tapering jig is also used for the bench’s legs, and is helpful for any other project requiring angled cuts.
