This is how it should look once done with the wedge, now

We do this with a series of cuts dividing the material into
smaller and small halves until there is nothing left.

Use the same dividing method to smooth, just go slow and
don't go to deep with your cuts, you will end up with the stump

Keep scoring until you cut right through the wing, you must
score the wing to prevent chipping and fraying of the cut.

the pattern onto the other wing and it will be symmetrical
