How do I fix a crooked wall stud?

12 years ago

My brother and I just finished remodeling my kitchen, but before we can finish we've run into a unique problem.

While reframing around a door, a stud was inadvertenly hammered out of vertical alignment. It now isn't flush with the wall on the other side, which should make it difficult to put up drywall and a corner bead. I need to somehow cut or sand that stud flush with the wall for drywalling. Any ideas on how to fix this?

(I don't know why there was plywood nailed to the studs, but I'm going to have to remove it in order to get to the stud that's out of vertical alignment)
