Question re: beeswax

Recommended Posts

A little goes a long ways, 1 lb. should last you a year or better unless you're doing a railing or something big or doing a lot of production.

Just hold the piece up and touch the wax to it, if it smokes much let it cool till the wax melts with just a little smoke. It'll be very fluid and coat well. Let it cool till the wax begins to set, the sheen will change, and wipe it off with a cotton rag. Always use the same rag.

After a while you'll be able to just wipe small pieces down with the rag to finish them. (hot of course)
