No, you do not cut one long strip at 83\7 degrees.

I cut long strips about 2.5” wide at 90 degrees. Notice the grain orientation in the pic below.
To make the splines you use the small sled (that will give you one degree) with tablesaw blade set at 83 or 7degrees. You make one cut then flip the board so that the top is now the bottom and make another cut.

In the pic below I am using 2 magnetic feather boards as stops. One so I don’t cut the jig in two and the other so I know I have gone back far enough not to touch the spinning blade.

The grey board is the sled that came with the jig to produce the one degree angle.

The box elder board with magnets came with the jig. it is a stop block to make splines of a consistent (and correct) width.

The stick next to the blade has a dab of dry silicon on the end of it. I use it to flick the splines out of the way of the blade if I need to.
