I tried using the rasp to just waste the strip away but it was taking too long.. so, the flush cut saw to the rescue.

Clamps are so cool. I finally splurged and bought 4 mini-clamps, and boy do they make work so much more efficient!
The saw with the green handle is a Japanese-style rip/crosscut saw. Japanese saw cuts on a pull stroke and makes quick work of these cedar planks.

The microplane. Nowadays everyone knows it as a tool in the kitchen to give you kickass citrus zest and papery-thin cheese.
Who remembers that this started out as a kickass rasp for woodworking? I do. What else? That said rasp has two holes at either end so to be accepted in a 12" hacksaw frame so you have a wicked rasp!
This is so cool.
