You can do it with a router with a fence.
Or with a circular saw with a fence.
Or with an electric plane with a fence.
The latter I would say was best.
Saves having to buy special bits which only cut a particular size.
It's easiest to form this sort of thing on the edge of a much wider bit of
wood and then cut it off afterwards.
Stops the wood from deflecting under load whilst being machined.
With a couple of routers, a router table, lots of bits and a circular saw
available I'd probably choose a table saw before any of the others.
But if you supplied the dimensions of your finished item and if you already have
the raw material it would enable the advice to be something a bit better than a
total stab in the dark.
That was my concern hence preferring the table saw. Freehand working or even
with a guide on something too thin or narrow to hold, already of the finished
length, or where you need to preserve the bottom face can make things a lot more
complicated. With a router mat holding relatively small section material is
eased but still not 100% issue free ( a big router making things far worse
IMHO). On a shiny kitchen / workshop worktop I can see four letter words flying
and maybe bits of wood.
