Put a sharp blade on the table saw and tilt the blade to exactly 45 degrees.The fence should be set at 2-1/4" from the inside of the 45 degree angle, in order to split the blank in half.If you're a little large, don't worry, as the exact leg profile will be shaped later.
Make your cut as even as possible and keep the wood from lifting off the saw table, as this newly cut surface will become your gluing edge.If you're having problems getting a good finish off the blade, move the fence in a hair and take a light skim cut or run the pieces over the jointer with the fence...
