Is it safe to cut butcher block after already oiling with tung oil/citrus solvent? (Fire risk?)
We are replacing an old counter top on our kitchen island, with butcher block. I applied two coats of tung oil/citrus solvent to the side of the counter that will not be visible, then flipped the slab to begin working on the 'pretty' side. Then... I realized that we still will need to cut out the sink hole. Now I'm nervous about an increased fire risk from the wood having been penetrated (on one side) with the tung oil/citrus solvent. The saw blade creates a ton of heat as it is, and now the wood is imbued with oil/solvent. How can we safely cut the sink hole?
