Clean off mortar from unfinished wood on cabinet?

Hi, Any suggestions for cleaning off old mortar (40 yrs old)
from unfinished wood? We ripped off our old kitchen counter tiles
which had been set in 2 inches of mortar and chickenwire.
The tiles had overhung and had been cemented to the front of the
wood cabinets (probably walnut) and the area of overhang had
never been stained or finished.

Little bits of mortar are still adhering to this unfinished wood area
which we would like to remove in order to stain. (Our new countertop
will have an overhang but will *not* have tiles cemented in this area.)

Maybe try these, HD sells them also, then sand the wood after you remove the mortar, it will be hard not to scratch the wood some doing this, they also make carbide sandpaper, don't know how much mortar we're talking about.

Thanks! It's not much mortar- just clumps here and there as most
of it came off with the tile.
