Default a larger 'balsa stripper'

a larger 'balsa stripper' - clamping table, razor saw etc. The razor saw is clamped at an angle, with the left side on the photo even with the table.

For larger pieces, the aluminum flat acts as a slide, and moves relative to the table, with the balsa stationary on the aluminum flat. For less wide pieces and just shaving off that last thin strip, I did not use the aluminum flat.

The clamped wood acts to keep the balsa strip perpendicular to the razor saw, as well as the guide and determining cut thickness.

For pieces where the two cuts do not meet, a #11 blade completes the cut by hand.
