Its to be used with a router that has a 5/8th bushing and a 3/8th bit to make some 3/8th slots in a board or piece of plywood

what I’m struggling with is what tool or machine I can use to create the jig with

here is a drawing with some dimensions


also I just want to confirm that with that bushing and bit combo that offset is 1/8th correct

I’d say table saw to rip the base part to size, and a miter saw to cut the slots, then a 1/2” chisel to square the inside line of the slots and clean it up.
