How do I remove epoxy from balsa?
I went a little overboard with the epoxy on some balsa. Is there anyway to remove it?

OOPs, epoxy is forever.
If its just one lump, you might try prying it off. It will take some wood with it, and need refinishing. Nothing will dissolve it.
A Dremel tool with a sanding drum will be better than the 8" grinding wheel but it will still be ugly.
Heating it with a soldering iron will soften it and may allow removal. Use a 15W or so, not something that chars the wood.
I don't think a covering iron will get hot enough to soften it, but I may be wrong.

I've often removed epoxy by applying heat, like from a heat gun. It softens the epoxy and usually it can be pealed off the wood.
