Heat and wipe drew out the wax (thanks for the tips!). I used a heat gun gently and some DNA really helped wipe it off after. After some sanding and planing to the point of no return ( I took about 3/16 off each side so the board is about 1 1/4” thick now), it’s still oily. I think that damned mineral oil made it all the way through – especially the maple.

Lesson learned
