If you are installing our reclaimed wood on a wall, chances are you are going to need to do a little cutting around an electrical outlet or two. We have put together a few helpful tips for installing a reclaimed wood wall to make it easier.
- Be sure to locate the circuit breaker or fuse for the outlet and make sure you turn it off.
- Loosen the screws that hold the switch or outlet into the wall. Unscrew them enough for the wood to slide under the device.
- Use a jig saw to cut a notch to fit the screw and then apply the board to the wall. A small saw should do the trick.
- Re-tighten the screws to bring it tight on the board again.
In come cases, you may need to replace the screw with a longer one which you can pick up at any hardware store or online.
