Jig to safely cut thin pieces

After cutting a larger piece of wood into useable peg sticks for some Greene and Greene projects I am making, the remaining piece gets to small to safely push through. I came up with this a solution. It is adjustable for length and uses adjustable height hold downs. The sacrificial hold downs are made of MDF and are easy to cut down and reuse or replace. Easily and safely cuts peg sticks down to under 3/16”.

-- Style is simple, but not my execution of it.

You should copyright this ASAP or the big tools guys will steal your idea. Pure genius.

Quite a bit of clever engineering there.
The adjust-ability of it is the best part!
Very nice work !

Great idea, thanks for sharing. Sodabowski is right, if this original a copyright might just make you famous.
