Make it, If you use a timber that's pretty strong cross-grain you can

there are a few hits on google on homemade jigs to drill the critical

engraving (which I hope to have running by the end of the year since I
will have 2 or 3 weeks off of work). Good luck, your sandwiches
should taste much better.
