    Wax's for the Job ?

    There are many and I use them all depending on the job. Because I work with so many finishes and periods or furniture from 1700's to present.

    My go to wax is Butchers Bowling Alley wax. But I use car wax {Mirror Glaze}, Bison wax, bees wax. Just about anything with silicone.
    I dream a lot. I do more painting when I'm not painting. It's in the subconscious.

    I stay clear of silicone wax. My shop is so small I don't want to chance getting it on my stationary tools and contaminating any raw wood. My expierance has shown me that it makes it hard to get a good finish when silicone gets of the bare wood.
