Need help with how to remove a piece

I am trying to create a beam for use in a outdoor kitchen roof and I can not figure out how to remove the piece of wood for the design I want. I drew the outline with the pencil and arc tool on a 2x6 I downloaded from the 3D warehouse. However, I can not figure out how to remove the wood outlined. Please help. Thank you in advance.

The beam may be a component.
You need to draw directly on the face, so enter the component first, then draw the desired curve. That will split the face. Push out the little face to the other side to remove the wood.

Here’s an example based on @Wo3Dan’s instructions.

First step was to open the component for editing. Note once the last line segment is added the edges outlining the profile go thin. Then Push/Pull is used to push away the waste.
