I did use a grinder with a 1mm cutting disc taking off very small amounts at a time, yeah it will smoke a bit but thats ok. You need to get all the wood out, go till you see the fibreglass layer under the top sheet and the base (wear a dust mask and safety glasses obviously)

If you are worried just use a spar urethane and paint it on the wood like people do with splitboards
