I thought about that one, too.  I think I can slide a paint scraper in some of the joints to give me kerf room.

How about a diamond dremel wheel...carefully cutting between wooden side and end panels, essentially separating the head portion of nail from shank. Then after removing side panel and nail heads, use pliers to remove nail shanks...whallah.

Sadly, tho, they have to come out.  I have to cut the box down and then put the bottom back on.  And the nails are right where I want to cut.  I'm putting nails right back in when it goes back together.
