Big fan of Bridge City Tool Works. Wish I could afford more of their amazing gear. I do have their Kerfmaker, which I have used on a few jobs, and had perfect joints as a result.
They also make the Chopstick Master – yes, it seems a bit of a niche tool, but the quality of the tool they make for this purpose is second to noone.
Here is a video by BCTW of their Chopstick Master in action. This is the 1st gen version, they are in the process of releasing version 2, which does not use a sawblade to create the end finial, but instead uses the supplied plane for all the steps.
Version 2 – crating the finial with the plane
The original video, describing how the Chopstick Master can into existence.
