I am attempting to run wire up a wall and hit an interesting problem behind the drywall.
Behind the drywall is what appears to be inch thick wood paneling.
Apologies for the rotation, will fix.
Behind the paneling is, I think, blocking which I have to drill through to get the wire where I need it.
Can I cut out this paneling to give me access to the blocking?
The house was built in 1905, and renovated sometime in the last 30 years.
Also, can anyone identity the paper between the drywall and the wood? It appears to be a thin wood laminate with a paper back?
