Get pooled dried paint off hardwood?

In my new house, some dillweed spilled paint on the hardwood under a built-in cabinet. I’d like to clean it up but don’t know the best way besides chipping it up.

Anyone know a solvent that will make the paint easier to remove but not destroy the floor?

    Ive ripped up the fake tile, and have had brand new cabinets with granite counter tops installed. I am seriously interested in oak flooring and have already put down the deposit. Do i have the hardwood flooring – engineered- placed under the dishwasher – not yet purchased or even picked out – the fridge, and the stove or do I stop the wood flush against the edges of the appliances? Does having wood under the kitchen appliances create a hazzard? My floor is currently bare cement now. Thanks for all information. I would appreciate people who either have personally installed the wood or those who have benefitted from the installation.

    My kitchen island was installed on top of hardwood floor that was already in kitchen. Now I need to remove hardwood so I can install slate. What is the best way to saw along the base of the island cabinets ? The cut must be tight to the base of the cabinet so that rules out a circular saw. Also I have to deal with the added complication that there is an overhanging kick space at the bottom of cabinet so only about 5″ of head room.
