Art, that was my thinking as well. I definitely have enough meat to take at least 1/16” off this board. I think I will give that a shot. I wasn’t sure how deep the oil really penetrates, this my question. Mineral oil doesn’t dry, so I assume it just keeps going as deep as it can. On end grain boards, I have actually seen is soak completely through the board. If I don’t get it all after sanding and some light planing, I’ll just refinish the board and leave it as it is.
