    +1 on this.

    You might end up with a rounded profile
    opposite the flat, but that shouldn't matter.

    It's the lateral clearance that matters.

    I prefer a round profile to a peaked one.
    I'm...

    Offset may not be necessary, if the top is split.

    I have a clumsy variant of this with a removable center board.

    I would be proud, if my meager efforts turned out half so well.

    I just replaced the saw base on mine.

    There are minor differences, mainly in the zero clearance
    plate to reduce tearout. Otherwise - it behaves much the same.

    Smoking deal.

    I like his "Reagan" handle.

    The saw is heavy, and it wants to point down.
    The handle is a little larger, and allows better control.
