tapered legs - how do I cut them?

I'd like to taper some table legs but am not sure how to do it. I haven't started yet, but will probably just use 2x4's. (The legs will be for a small TV stand) Is there a jig I can make? Would a handsaw work? My circular saw is 45 miles away...just have my tablesaw here.

Thanks,
Sampson in Wisconsin

Here is an article and diagram and instructions on a jig you can make to cut tapers on a table saw.
