Removing Paint from wood wall panels

In my dining room, there are walls that are wood panels that have been painted over. Id like to remove them to expose the wood. For the most part, the paint comes off rather easily, except for the crevices where the wood meets each other as seen in the pic. Any tips on how to remove the paint efficiently with out damaging to wood too much?

Removing Paint from wood wall panels

I would peel as much off as I possibly could with flat drywall knives and then gently use a heat gun and specialty angle scrapers (available at woodworking stores) to get the paint in the crevasses and corners and anything else still stuck down.
