I have some oak flooring that was removed from a house. The nails are still in the tongues of the boards (the flooring was blind nailed). I want to use this wood to patch in an area in my house that doesn't have hardwood and it's a perfect match. The problem is that I'm not sure what's the best way to remove the nails without damaging the flooring. They appear to be a tapered nail with some slight barbs.
Any help would be appreciated!
