Default cutting board problem.

I made a hard maple and walnut edge grain cutting board and finished it with mineral oil. My problem is parts of the hard maple boards seem to have raised grain. I tried fixing it rubbing it with one of those 3M white pads and putting more mineral oil on it. I am having no luck.

Measure once cut twice and it's still to short.

Did the raising of grain happen with the mineral spirit finish? or after washing the board after use? I used walnut oil on my oak platter/cutting boards and have been using them regularly at the grill. Doing a sort of trials on the design and finish I sanded to 220 grit and have had some raised grain after use. I think some raised grain is inevitable with use.

Don - lately I have been sanding my boards to the final finish, then wipe them down with a wet rag. When the board is dry, I sand it again until smooth, then apply the mineral oil. They have been turning out very smooth.

It is just another step and takes a little while for the board to dry, but the effort has been worth it. Besides, I like to take breaks!

That's my story and I'm stickin' to it!

Would a scraper avoid the "fuzz?" A scraper severs the grain, sanding abrades it.

Or maybe a plane before the finishing?

Bill it's finished with mineral oil not mineral spirits. Also there has been no water on it at all. The wife said she wasn't going to use it just let it sit out.
