An ordinary slab-of-metal knife works just fine too, you know.

Maybe all you need is a really nice bread knife.  They are not all created equal.

I guess a band saw is out? 
So, I saw a couple of similarly designed bread slicers to the one in your image at the thrift store this weekend. I think they were asking a $1.50 each.

A band saw would work.  I was just thinking that the blade on my table saw is just the right size.  But sometimes you gotta use what you got.

Years ago, I bought a side of beef and cut it up on my band saw. It did a pretty good job, but afterwards,  it took me a full day to clean all the beef bits out of it.

You can get the board and the plastic at Home Depot.  You'll need a way to cut the slots in the guides accurately though.  A table saw would be perfect for that.

You can cut the slots with a jig saw, but they'll be pretty narrow. I'd suggest clamping both of your side pieces together when you cut the slots, so they line up.

Why bother with two sides? If the wood is thick enough (2cm?) then it will keep the knife straight...
