Cabinetmakers Wax

  • Cabinetmakers Wax GS-70404

    A firm building wax, designed to develop a protective layer on timber. Excellent for filling imperfections such as hairline cracks or tiny holes. Cabinet Maker's Wax is marvelous on oak, jarrah and other woods that have no specific finish. Used over the Restoring Polish, Cabinet Maker's Wax produces a natural finish. Traditionally applied with OOOO steel wool to drive the firm wax into any gaps. 

    Use For

    Timber

    Surface Preparation

    Prepare the raw timber using either our Orange Oil, Liquid Beeswax or Restoring and New Timber Polish.

    How to Apply

    1. Dip 0000 steel wool into tin and remove a small amount of wax. Rub into the timber with pressure in line with the grain. 
    2. Buff back with a soft, lint-free cloth or buffing pads. Can be applied without the steel wool.
    3.  Use up to three coats, buffing well between coats. Allow up to four hours between coats.

    Dry Time

    Overnight for best results

    Maintenance

    Depending on wear (as the surface becomes dull or dry). These natural wax finishes do breathe, so we recommend use of coasters and mats where applicable.

    Clean Up

    Warm, soapy water for hands or cloth. Excess wax on timber; dampen a cloth with d-Limonene or mineral turpentine.

    We have also discovered that it can also be used as a rust inhibitor and to reduce friction on cast-iron machine and tool surfaces. And it makes the workshop smell good too.
