Which tool to use? (wedge shape)

Hi,

I have a rectangle piece of pine wood, measuring:
L250mm x W 46mm x T20mm
And I'd like to form it into a wedge shape.

I have attached an image of it. The red line denotes the cut below.

Could someone tell me how I can achieve a relatively accurate cut - what tool(s) would I need?

Thanks.

Welcome to the forum. The only way to easily do it would be to mount the piece of wood on a sled at the desired inclination and run it through a planer thicknesser. This isn't something that you could do yourself without investing upwards of £1000 in a p/t but most reasonable joinery shops would be able to do it fairly simply. The only thing would be that it would be necessary to do the cut out after the wedge shape has been produced.

A simple way would be a bandsaw then a sand or if you only have basic hand tools a belt sander in a vice.
