Not made from wood but for wood. Design to make inlay, highlights or groove and dado in small boxes (puzzle boxes). 1/8 and 1/16 blades are made from 1/8×2 square tool bit from Busybee store (on the third picture the packaging label is wrong). One side of the bit sharpened to less then 45 degree and the other side to form double scoring knife. Overall, works well on soft and hard but not grainy wood.

Love this project and love the idea of using plastics for wood working tools. Well done!

This looks awesome and something I would like to try. How about some construction details?

Great design for inlaying. Can see how it should take the guess work out of stoping within the lines. Does it cut two grooves at a time or just guides along? May want to patent it before someone else does. Thanks
