I don't know what everyone is going on about about waxing their board for an hour or two. I use a metal scraper and I can get the excess wax off in 5-10 mins without damaging the board or "getting too much off". Maybe it's my east coast conditions that take the wax off in 10 runs, but I don't see missing a tiny bit if wax that you could have take off as a big deal.

wax it as much as you want it's designed for that. Unless you'll start using a screwdriver to scrape or leave your iron in one place till the base bubbles up, you are not ruining the base in any way. Those things can take a lot of punishment.

Btw make sure you let it cool for 30 minutes before you scrape it
