Default Removing price labels

What is the best approach to removing those intrusive, gummy, price labels on wood?

I found a small sheet of Birch plywood with a great grain pattern, right in the middle of which was one of those big price labels that would not peel.

Sounds like a great opportunity for one of Stick's brews.

easy on the heat...
hair dryer - heat gun may cook the wood and it will show up in the finish...
turps for the residue....

This would have been the week that I'd have finished chewing thru the restraints...
If only new layers hadn't been added....

I used a type of really soft rubber wheel that fits in your drill and is specifically designed to remove pin stripping off of vehicles . I think it was from Napa

I don’t always insulate , but when I do .
Ok ,I never insulate

I use Benzine to get the sticky labels off anything - not sure if it will damage the natural oils in the wood though.
