Further to my reply:

I too have built the Steve Latta Tapering jig. Bill and William are right that this jig will yield perfect tapers, safely and accurately. I added some other features to increase its versatility.

I built 2 Macore tables designed after a similar table in FWW Design Book #7.
The legs are constructed from maple, wenge and veneer.
The maple blank is rabbited to accept 4 wedge corners, then glued, then tapered, then veneered.
The final cut exposing the wenge is done on the Latta jig with a cradle to accept the leg at 45 degrees.
