Hi All

Which blade do you put in your table saw to taper a leg for a table?

My wood is poplar.

One side of my brain says to use the cabinetry blade, 80 tooth.

The other side of my brain says it is still basically a rip cut, use the 24 tooth rip blade.

Which one do you guys use?

You are limited to tapers twice as deep as your thickest cut.
Not really. Just treat the taper cut as your new fresh edge and repeat the process. As many times as may be needed.
