Default Did I scraped too much?? new to waxing

Whatsup guys, new to the forum!

I just got a new board as an early christmas present, a libtech hot knife and recently decided to start waxing my own board. i picked up an iron and everything else id need to wax, and waxed last night.

the wax job seemed to go well for my first time, but i think i may have over scrapped the edges.. i noticed that the boards base along the edges seemed a little dry and pale too before i waxed, idk if its normal to buy a brand new board thats like that. anyways as im scraping along the edges with a plastic scraper, im getting all the wax off and noticed that there was some black dust in the wax scrapings. after i brushed and polished the board, the board is super smooth except for along the edges in some spots, in streaks. its a littleee rough to the touch, and it still looks a little dry.

did i damage my base?? what should i do?
