i made this one over at my dad’s shop. it is made from jatoba,the wood for the blade was resawed thin on the band saw and evened out by running it through the drum sander, and the dado was done on the table saw very carefully so the joint was a tight press fit that is also held together with glue and brass through pins. it also has scribe mark every inch

Looks absolute perfect. It must be a pleasure each time you use it and also when it still hangs up at the wall in your shop.
Very well done!
Thank you for sharing.

Very nice work but are you not worried about the accuracy of the tool due to wood movement/shrinkage?

Looks nice
