Anybody Recognize This Piece?

Can you help Marvin find out what this wood piece in his collection is and what it’s used for?

This piece is part of my collection. I’ve collected over 75 years. Along with Model A’s and Model T’s, also John Deere, Fordson and flat-head Fords.

Can anyone identify this item? It is made of wood. The only marking is American W…. It appears to chop at an angle. The piece measures 34 by 14 by 5 inches.
