I've made some raised panels using the TS and now need to clean up the top edge. I've done one with a chisel, and could do the others the same way, but fancy taking the opportunity to make something to do it. Would a scratch stock of a molding plane be better suited to the job. Here is the waste left by the saw that needs to be cleaned up:



Here is the profile, the bit circled is the bit I want to clean up.



Any suggestions as to which would be better?

I'd take it back to vertical with a shoulder plane which would leave a little flat on the field, which I'd take down with the same plane.
I've done this a lot with a TS but don't get your waste detail - quite the opposite- the end of the blade leaves an undercut edge which is easy to plane off to make a raised panel. Or not raise the panel at all so there is no edge detail to deal with.

Yes I know what you mean about the normal undercut. Thats what I got with this. But then I did a second TS cut with the panels face down, blade over at 45 to chamfer the edge of the panel. Which left me with the little bit of waste you see. A shoulder plane it is then!
