Re: wood help..

You can either use a wonder bar and gently pull it apart a little at a time or use a small punch or nail and drive the nails through the board. No easy way, nail guns are great for putting things together, not so much for coming apart. Greg what is a wonder bar? I thought about trying to punch the ...
