What do you recommend to check for glue remnants on an unfinished end grain cutting board? Water? Mineral spirits? I plan on sealing the board with tung oil followed by beeswax.

mineral sounds good
with oil

i’ve read about ‘blacklights’
but they may only work with special glue ?

Dan, you’re right… black lights are used with a special light, but unlike you, I use water. It’s simply my preference.

cr1: I’m talking about the final check after sanding. Sometimes small areas of glue remain that don’t show up until you apply the sealer. Then they stick out like a sore thumb.
