The way you mentioned, will work but once you have tried a scrub, you will be amazed at how efficiently it will remove wood. If the budget doesn’t allow, you can hack together a Krenov style plane with a block plane iron with a big camber. A cheap block plane iron is like $3 at HD. Shouldn’t be too much of a barrier. Nice wide mouth. This is not a precision tool we are talking about.
