Kerfmaster plan for swap

I think this will work well ... thoughts?

I hope to make a couple of them for the swap this weekend.

That looks very different from other designs I've seen. Not much information given there to build from, but maybe enough for you to proceed. Make one and try it out before building more.

If Woodworking is so much fun why isn't it called WoodFUNNING?

I've made a few videos

The darker part on the top is what you use to measure the desired width you want. The lighter part is what you set to the offset for the kerf.

I am in the process of making one today ... I'll post pics later.

I have finally seen the error in my understanding of how this Thingie works. My original design was just plain wrong. Here is the new plan ... I am much more certain that this is correct:
