I was reading some posts about tapered columns but I have a specific question. I'm not great with math so please bear with me. For a theatre set, I'm constructing several square tapered columns 16' tall with a 12" base and an 8" top. I believe the slope would be just under 1.5 degrees. Would the bevel on the four-sided column be 45 degrees at a 1.5 degree slope? I would think I would put the sides of the shaft in a jig and cut the bevel with a circular saw. To be even more difficult, what if I want to go with butt joints? I assume the settings would be different. Can anyone tell me what they would be? The great online angle calculators are confusing to me. Thanks for your help!
