I put together my ‘prototype’ jig based upon your suggestions. I actually combined a couple of suggestions to come up with this jig….the v-block to hold the handle and a square block to create the 90 degree cuts. I didn’t want to use the fence because I need to make a lot of these, I hope, over time so I wanted to simplify my setup each time. So I made a sled with a v-block centered on the bandsaw blade and a square block to slide over the tenon on the handle. Here’s a picture of the result:

Thanks for all your suggestions!!
