We're remodeling, and I'm putting on trim.
I have a door that is very close to a wall, so one of the trim pieces
I'm using necessarily needs to span jamb to perpendicular wall.
Unfortunately, the distance from the jamb to the wall is 3.5" at the
top and 2.5" at the bottom. The standard width of this trim is 3.5"
around the entire house.
So how do I rip a taper that long (about 85" long).
Do I build a large adjustable jig? I bought a taper jig, but it won't
hold pieces that long
Just toggle or otherwise clamp it to an 8' piece of ply a few inches
wide so it overhangs the ply as you wish.

You could draw the line and cut it with a:
Power hand plane
Router and pattern bit and straight edge
Circular or jig saw, cleaning up with a jointer, belt sander, or plane
Freehand on a band saw, cleaning up as above
Or what the others told you on your table saw.
What I would do, is use an 8ft long 3/4" piece of plywood about 6"
wide, and tack or double stick tape the trim piece to it such that the
cut line of the trim piece lined up with one of the plywood strip
edges. Then put the other side of the plywood against the fence of the
TS, adjustes so thatame width of the plywood. Send the whole thing
through the saw & your're done. BTW you can find this technique and
many others in most good table saw books. I like Kelly Mehler's book.
This was a great idea to all that suggested it..didn't have an DS tape
and didn't want to run our for it.
Tried it this AM..due for a winter storm here in Iowa this PM, so I
wanted to get this done ASAP
Used a 8" width and 8' long plywood I had, countersunk some drill
holes in the back side and mounted my oak through the back with some
Ran it through..famous results..fits perfect, wife loves me..thanks
