IMHO, it depends on whether you’d rather spend your time making a tool or working wood. A homemade one will work just as well as a “store bought” one with the exception of the ease of dialing in the depth with the store bought. Personally, I spend my time rehabbing/hoarding tools but if I were looking for one to use, I’d look at the LV or a vintage Stanley 71. You can get a decent Stanley for around $50. Oh, you’ll be surprised how nice that 1/2” cutter is and how nice it is to have a couple of other sizes.
