When you're scraping the wax off, would it be a good idea to stand the board up and lean it against a wall at like a 60 degree angle so you can scrape downward? It seems like this would be easier. If not, why not?

Yes, you can do that. But no, it generally is not easier - some of the issues with this approach:
- Can be difficult to keep the board stable
- Can scratch or nick the top sheet at the nose or tail depending on the surfaces
- Can be difficult to maintain even pressure and angle with the scraper as the board flexes.
