Need help with Warp Stud on stairs


Hi,

I am in the process of drywalling my basement and stairs. I discovered, as the pic shows, that one of the studs has good bow in it, about 1/2" out. It is right at the return air also.
Any suggestions on what I can do, would greatly appreciated.

Get your self a power-planer, or a manual planer and some "elbow grease".

Using a level, mark the location that needs to be planed down.
Then get to work.

You may need to do something with that wire that is too close to the stud surface. Also attach a nailing plate over that when done.

Thx for the help, once the metal sheeting was removed, the bowed stud shos that it is split, as the picture shows. it also looks like they did not screw any dry wall to it from the other side. it has some give and I am able to turn it slightly, not well anchored.
Would making a v cut on the back and brassing would be better that planning.

I can see that the stud is compromised because of the split.

My approach would be to plane down the bowing portion, and then sister a 2x3 next to it - to accomodate the area that lost it's nailing surface, due to the split....
