I made this to clean up the bottoms of some plows I had run in some cypress beam sides. It’s not pretty or fancy, but it got the job done. I used a 3/4 chisel. Got it sharpened up nice, then on the way out the door to go to work to use it, I dropped the chisel and dinged the corner :(
Oh well. It still did what I needed it to do reasonably well.

Nice. Love some cypress. Especially since it’s free.

It was a fun little build, in any case. The chisel is an Ashley Iles if anyone was wondering. Got a few for fathers day last year.
