*** Caution- Wear latex gloves, goggles (at least safety glasses) and a dust mask. ***

Most people are reactive to the dust. Nasal inflammation, eye irritation, nausea.. some people are reactive to the splinters.

Very beautiful wood. With Purple Heart, to prevent burning, ensure you have a sharp bit, take small bites, may have to lower the bit speed down.

An even simpler jig (like Charle's post) is to use a square piece of stock (90 degree corners) to use as a sacrificial support block. Use the sacrificial piece against the fence. Work against the fence and the support block. Continue the cut into the support block. That will act as zero clearance to prevent breakout.

My "made" jigs are like this, with a replaceable insert to use as sacrificial.
