Tapered a set of cherry 1(1/2) x 1(1/2) legs down to 1×1 at the ends with a mix of rip sawing and scrub plane. In some cases used the saw for the whole cut, in some cases used the scrub plane for the entire waste removal.

After going through it, probably prefer using the saw when dealing with removal of 1/2 inch of material in hardwood, but if I was only doing 1/4” or less, I would probably choose the scrub plane.

Its cool how you can sneak up on the edge with the scrub plane, and also how you can go for a curvature quite easily. Its cool how you can go right for the line with the saw. Both are fun.
