You have to be careful..too hard and you end up with a dip in the wood ..too soft and you don't achieve very much. Then I will mark the thickness if the leaf using a marking gauge..I use the Veritas one. Then gently make chisel cuts all along at 45 degrees but not as far as the leaf depth line. I will break out as much of this as I can...but gently. Then clamp a piece of 90 degree wood in line with the leaf depth line and then gently pare away using the block as a guide.
