Tile over tongue & groove pine backsplash


I would like to install a ceramic tile backsplash in my kitchen. It is currently all tongue & grove pine and runs the length of the entire wall including behind the cabinets. What is the best way to do this without having to take down all the cabinets? Pretty sure I would have to pull the base cabinets out too. Do I even need to remove the wood or is there a way to tile right over it? Any thoughts or ideas? Thanks!

Got a picture?
May be able to go over it with 1/4" tile board then the tile.
I would not suggest going over the wood.

Sorry, no pic. I thought if I wanted to tile over it I would need 1/2" tile board, and with that plus the tile it would be too much. You think 1/4" would work?

It's a soild surface your attaching it to so it will work.
It works on a floor, so it sure would work on a wall.
