Table saw sled above, I found I really needed to fully support the strip, the board with the slot holds down the wood

I came upon a supply of ebony that I have been ripping thin strips, First, I was using a Freud 7 1/4”thin kerf blade on the table saw using a sled, That worked pretty good, but slow due to trying to hold close tolerance, I found the thinnest kerf blades are for mini circular saws, some are .056” kerf, I bore them to fit my shaper spindle, and use a fixture, I can hold very close tolerance, and cut strips thinner then 1/32” Somewhere I have photos of the sleds I used, I used the small blade to cut the top off this box

Oops, I see that that you need more depth, on that note, you will have to put up with some kerf loss, or blade wander,
