Today’s Tip: Remove nails from woodwork

To remove nails from old trim that is to be reused I have always used a pliers or good pair of electrician's pliers (heavy-duty wire cutters). By using the pliers from the back side of the trim, the face stays smooth and free of splinters which usually are the result of pounding nails back through the face of the trim. One must consider how important the face of the trim is for the re-installation. When painting it may not matter if holes and splinters need to be filled. However, when working with stained trim the extra holes and chip-out look less than professional and are a pain to fill. Try a scrap piece of wood behind the pliers for leverage or use a vice-grips.
