Here’s one for those who are more adequate carpenters than me. I’m trying to take out this old paneling downstairs. The frame for the false ceiling is holding it in at the top. In the photo above, this is the view looking up to where the ceiling tiles where. The paneling that has to go is to the right. Now, see the board running along the right side of the photo, against the paneling? That has to go to pull the panels out. But it is firmly nailed to the joists above and the other parts of the frame. I tried getting under with a crow bar but I can’t get an angle at it that works. I think my dad attached it with the notion that it would survive 150 years. Except at 50 years, the panels are rotten at the bottom from mold and flooding. So if anyone reading this has any idea of how to pry this loose, let me know.
