try wetting the wood real good to make it swell a little. put vice grips on brad ans twist just a little back and forth using very little pressure. keep the wood wet. get a very large drink of your choice it will take a while. It took me a day and half to get a broken bolt out of a water jacket on my old cummins engine one time. It cost a case of beer but saved me about $3000.00 for a used block. soaking wood is how i put marbles in my bull whip handles.
good luck.
