I was reviewing my favorites and noticed the kerfmakers everyone had been building some time ago, so I decided to have a go.
Made from mahogany and hard maple for the runner.
I had to go to the local ACE to find some brass hardware, I never could find a fender washer that was brass so I wound up using a nickel. (I think I remember Mafe using a coin on one of his.)
Finished with shellac and wax.

GrumpyMike, Here is a link to a blog on how to use one that Mafe posted. http://lumberjocks.com/mafe/blog/18170
Also here is a link to a bunch of others. http://lumberjocks.com/projects/tag/kerfmaker/by/date/page/1

Antknee, the slots were cut on the router table with a 3/8” dado bit.
