My jewelry boxes feature a sunburst pattern on the lid, which I make by gluing up nine or so tapered pieces into a fan shape.The jig that I use to cut these small tapered workpieces on my tablesaw is built like a miniature sliding crosscut table.
One big difference, however, is that the runner (which fits in the tablesaw's miter-gauge slot) is attached at an angle to the centerline of the jig.The runner angle should be half the desired taper angle, which for my jig is 4¡.
An adjustable fence to the right of the kerf determines the width of the tapered piece's wider end.The lower end of this fence has an adjustable hold-down that registers the workpiece for the second pass.
With this jig, you can vary the width of the workpiece but not the taper angle...
