Pretend it’s walnut, and sanded, and routed, and finished w BLO.
It’s a lot to ask I know, but this is how to cut useful wedges for all sorts of installs.
Taught to me by a cabinet carpenter.

You never move the fence. You flip the block until you are out of wood.
Hope this helps someone. B/c before I had the answer I just made it work, and it sucked. This cuts a bucket full of wedges in a minute or two.

I mainly use them for leveling out cabinets, but they come in handy for sure. And just making something work, compared to a thought out solution that works… it was a big improvement.
