I needed to make some tight half lap joints for a couple of crosses that I was making for a friend so it was a great excuse to finally make one of these kerf makers. I used Bradford pear for this because it’s tight grained and hard so it machines well. I milled this pear wood last summer from storm damaged trees that broke apart and dried it through the summer. I pretty much used the design that Mafe showed in his excellent series and blog posts on kerfmakers. See his posts for a description of how to make one and how one is used.
