Just how much more oiling on new board?

dsk321 | Feb 23, 201903:00 PM     11

So I bought 2 boardsmith maple seconds almost a year ago but for various reasons didnt open the box till last week. They were intact as I kept the box indoors and still had a bit of oil in them, but didnt want to risk any further dry out.

I've been applying copious amounts of mineral oil every day for nearly a week now, and it just keeps absorbing like a sponge. Is there a point where I can just apply a beeswax paste and call it done? Or should I keep going till it stops absorbing?
