Hi,
Your jig looks fine, and you are using the old noodle to come up with it. I enjoy making jigs & fixtures myself. I think in this case I would use the Micro Jig Grr-Ripper. I just finished ripping 28 pen blanks out of Camelthorn and that stuff is hard as Japanese arithmetic. I was ripping it out of 2X2’s and with the riving knife, a thin kerf blade, and the Grr-Ripper
I felt my hand was safe. Try one, I think you will like it
