How to remove wooden braces inside cabinet?
« on: August 20, 2020, 09:46:44 am »
I'm not sure what the correct term is for those small strips of wooden bars that are in the insides of an arcade cabinet, but I picked up a cabinet and like to do some modifications on it; however, I need to remove some of these bars as they are in the way. 

From what I can tell a nail gun and perhaps glue was used to attach these pieces of wood - what would be the best tool or procedure to use to remove these strips without damaging the side panel?

Thanks

Thanks!  Argh...it looks like a brad nail gun was used...so the nail is deeply embedded in, and can't get a grip on it as a brad nail is a straight type nail with no grips.
