I tore up my old deck to do some drainage work and now I'm ready to build a new deck in the old footprint. I couldn't remove the screws from the deck planks because they were buried way down in the wood, so I cut out pieces with a skill saw.
I want to try saving the 4x4 wood joists/supports but I haven't found an easy way to do this. I can't get a sawzall blade in between the 4x4s and the planks, and like I said, the screws are completely buried. Is there any clever way I can save these 4x4s?
