carnauba wax removal

Bill L.
>After turning a few chinese hat boxes I beal buffed the outside of each one leaving the inside "natural" . Later I decided to lightly apply danish oil to the interior . I knew of the power of capillary action and did it show up ! The outside of the maple is blotched just inside the carnauba finish . Is there a good solvent to remove the carnauba wax perhaps immersing the small box so I might be able to finish the entire box in danish oil ? Fortunately only one box had this combo applied . Thanks for any input. Bill L.
