Tapering the stiles

Referring to the cutting list on page 89, cut the frame stiles to size, then taper their bottom ends. The tapers will give the bottom of the stiles an elegant, leglike appearance. Clamp one of the stiles face up on a work surface and make one cutting mark on its bottom end YA inches from the inside edge and another mark on the edge 5 inches up from the bottom. Join the two marks with a line, then use a rip saw to cut the taper along the line (right). Use the tapered stile as a template to mark cutting lines on the remaining stiles, then taper them the same way. Sand all the cut edges smooth.
