I just can't help myself....something comes to mind about the nut not falling far from the tree.
Frank you could use a block plane & start just up from the point & take a couple or more passes & step back a little & take a couple of passes etc.
You said the sides is that the flat area's what I was thinking of was the edges. Maybe do the edges last & make a jig & cut the sides on the table-saw.
