Scrape, sand, cut. I’ve used the Fein Oscillating Multi-Tool for 20 years to prep wood for painting, to take years of old paint off shutters, to sand between shutter slats, to get glue from between floor boards on a hardwood floor someone glued carpet to and it oozed between the cracks. It’s heavy but effective — quicker than anything else. It puts all other multi-tools to shame.
