Subject:
Knife edge taper

steven antonucci
I have a bunch of 1/4" thick x 1 5/8" wide "slats" that I need to cut a knife edge on along the length. They vary from 10"-22" long, and I am afraid that the tablesaw will be dangerous as well as destructive because they are so thin.

Anyone have any thoughts about how to build a shooting board to thin one edge with a block plane or similar?
