    I cut my slats from the risers w a sawzall. The slats are easy. The risers are a pain to denail. Attempting to pry the boards apart would yield 30% fewer boards since they are thin & brittle.

    Mny thanks for posting this. I've been struggling with the same problem and this solution never occurred to me. Sometimes the simple ideas are the best.
