Build stronger than I did. Make the base plate 2x4 or 6 and use 1x4 for the butt piece, headstock, and 'fretboard area'. No dado-ing that way. Glue and screw. I think the basic design works.

My copy of that (it may not be a baritone) is gonna be a hybrid, wood and aluminum. I have 2 VERY dense and hard mahogany shelves to use for tonewood, but the bottom will be maybe birch or something. Not wasting a great top.

That vid is the reason I'm building a baritone. That vid blew my mind. I've had comm with that guy, very nice and helpful.

Easy peasy, grab a tone bar & slide it across the strings? it’s that easy...

Wow...I had no idea. I'll give that a try...

This really does it for me. There's live vids, bootlegs from various places, if you can find one of good quality that focuses mostly on him, holy crap, it's amazing...
