Well, seems like you saturated the board with MO, and it will never dry, MO is to be applied thinly, it is more a visual enhancement than protection for a board and will do nothing to stop the grain from raising as you noticed. MO only finished products should be lightly sanded and re coated regularly in order to maintain the original look. So now you need to get as much MO out from your board, wrap it up in newsprint, paper towels, or any absorbent paper, leave it for about a week and remember to change the wrapping often. After that allow it to air dry for about three days, sand it back with MO and sandpaper. You can also mix beeswax along with your MO for sanding, this gives you a better surface finish and is slightly more durable.
