Oak and Brass. Uses an X-Acto knife blade to make the mark and get a good start on the knife line. The slot is large enough for a thicker blade if needed.

Is the threaded bolt on the end for locking the blade in place, or how is the blade secured? I’ve been toying with making one of these, myself, and just don’t feel confident that I have a good plan for holding the blade in place…. Very nice!

Yes, I cut the slot for the blade with a chisel. I drilled a 13/64” hole in the end and tapped it with a 1/4 – 20 tap. Threaded wood holds surprisingly well as long as you don’t reef on it too hard. Coating the wood to be threaded with cyanoacrylate glue prior to tapping it helps strengthen it too.
