Nothing you haven’t seen a half-dozen times now. I made this today out of some maple scrap. Extremely quick and easy to build. I made the rabbets on the jointer and used an 1 1/4” carriage bolt and a wingnut with a large fender washer to hold it together.
Works pretty-well, but if you can see in the crappy cell phone picture an ATB blade is not the best choice here. I’ll need to get a flat-bottom blade if I plan to use this for anything other than cross lap joints where you don’t see the bottom of the kerf.
Since I cut the one piece to match the saw blade kerf I’ll either need to get a thicker blade or create an adjustment feature with a screw or such as other have done.
EDIT: You can get a couple Sketchup files I made with an alternative no-rabbet design here:
