Hi Carl
Although I've not done it, I watched a painter strip the paint from a cedar shingle sided house, using a propane torch with a special no-flame head in one hand and a wire brush in the other. Now, I know this sounds kind of scary, and would not have been my choice...but when he finished, the paint was stripped and there was not even a scorch mark on any of the cedar. Hmmmmmmmm....I still don't think I'd try it...but in the right, experienced hand, it can obviously work.
