A buddy has recently bought a can of "Min _ _ _ (not completing the word) Paste Finishing Wax - comes in a yellow can :cool: - to use on a new project - refinishing an antique table and says he loves it.

That's new to me - and I may try it - on a few canes.

Anyone else here used it with success?

thanx

I've used it on some of my canes and walking sticks and liked the results. I like to first like to put on a couple of coats of boiled linseed oil after it dries I apply a thin layer of paste wax (I use Johnson's) let it dry 30 to 40 minutes then buff it off with a soft cloth then I repete the process.

I've used lots of the "Min-" products. Have found all of them to be high quality.

For canes, my favorite waxes are those based on carnauba wax. Pure carnauba is very heat and water resistant. But it needs to be buffed w. a wheel, because it needs to be warm to flow smoothly, and give a gloss finish.

When U guys use wax, how often does it need to be reapplied? 'Spose it depends on usage?

I have used Johnson and Johnson wood for wax on a number of prodect. I apply it in thin layers, going over it with a heat gun or hairdryer after application of each layer. The hot wax absorbs deeper into the wood and will melt down into small cracks or improfetions in the wood. It is a very durable finish. It can require touch up now and then. I have only done this on projects with the bark removed.
