Old cabinet question

What would be a good way to go about saving the wood from old old cabinets that have 3-4 layers of paint in them.

Surface Planner?
Stripper?
Burn em?

Unless there's something special about the cabinets...vintage doors etc...I can't imagine what you'd get from the work to strip the wood. Also how old? If pre-1980's...

Take them to a salvage renovation store as is. Get a store credit for something you can use.
