This week, I found a way to cut the angle and taper of the leading edges with the table saw. I made this jig for the first cut. Here, you can see the table saw bevel at the correct 20 degrees with the wood supported by the jig. The jig is at a slight taper which holds the spruce at an angle to the blade so the correct taper is applied at the same time as the bevel. The notch at the end holds the spruce to the jig.
Cutting the bevel on the other side is the tricky part, but I have a plan for that as well, which you'll see later.
