Okay guys, thanks for all your input. I was a little freaked out so it seems I wasn’t very clear.

1) I was talking about the little notch out in the upper left hand corner.

2) I’m a new hand tool guy and learning from Shannon Rogers Hand Tool School My intention is to force myself to use a chisel to learn the basics before doing it the easy way (Block Plane) Actually I haven’t even purchased a block plane yet (yea that new)

I solved the problem by learning through trial and error and got it down now. The short cut was done with a tenon saw so that was clean. I was mostly referring to the rip cut of the small cut out as you can imagine what that looked like with probably a dull saw. I realised I wasn’t using anything for a reference point i.e.. the back of the chisel. (duh) I was just free handing it at a 45 degree angle.

Any way thanks for the comments and I hope my noobness entertains you.
