Corn peel is a tool used to shake off the kernels from corn being dried after the autumn harvest. It consists of a rectangular body and a fixture made of wood branches. The V-shaped branch supports the body as a fixture. The body is made of a vertically trisected cylindrical log with a flat surface. A rectangular hole is pierced at the upper-middle part of the body, and a nail is driven upward into the lower end of the rectangular hole to allow corn kernels to peel off and fall into the hole when the corn is placed on the hole and pushed down toward the nail.
