    Default Saving old paneling?

    Does anyone have tips for removing (and salvaging) tongue and groove paneling?: I'm trying to save some beautiful pine paneling in an old lakeside cabin. Thanks in advance for your input.

    Tongue and grove paneling is held in place by finishing nails set in the "tongue" where they are not readily visible. If the heads pull through the wood when pried up, that is fine. Otherwise, slightly pry up the edge and cut the nails with a riciprocating saw. You will then be able to pull the board out of the "grove" of the next board.
