Being a decal artist (Scale-Master Decals), I made decals for the stitching, I'm not crazy enough to stitch that by hand, (or am I?).
The process for making the female splines is called Broaching, basically mashing the design into the part, similar to how some sockets are made.
The big ruler is made by setting my Shrink Ray Gun on reverse, (1200%) and just zapping my 6 inch machinist scale. (I can shrink it back down for storage.)
And as you can see in this photo, it's 6 feet long...
I'll post some other goodies for this project in another thread...

that's right, didn't you/your co make a bunch of oversizded stuff for a photo shoot/ ad campaign??? sparkplugs and stuff???
Wasn't me/us. I scale stuff down. The "big ruler" in the above post is a Photoshop gag made by Steve Boutte. It is me and my ruler, but it's not a "real" picture... - Mark

Well, those decals are very very convincing for stitching.
