Here's the result of the jig. Each piece cut precisely down to half thickness. I plan to join these using unthickened epoxy. The trick is to paint both surfaces with catalysed epoxy, then leave the first coat to soak in. To complete the joint, paint again then clamp lightly. Edit here! See the DISASTER! post above before doing this type of scarf. It's not up to the bending loads on the joint. It will fracture easily, leaving you with a lot of work to "do over". Stick to the book on this and make bevel scarfs.
