For the last several months I have been working on the same project - and now that project is done... So what now? I guess I will make sure all of my tools are cleaned and put away, and most importantly - sharp. I think spending some time sharpening chisels and plane blades will give me some time to think about what to build next. All I know at this point is that it will be made of cherry since I now have 500-boardfeet of it. - Andy

I love the feeling and appearance of wax on top of a smooth wood finish. There is just something about how your hand glides along that is appealing. With that being said, rubbing out dried wax can be a bit laborious and time consuming. To make the job easier, I used a microfiber-like buffing pad made by "SURBUF" (purchased at Woodcraft). Not only does the pad reduce the labor involved, it also leaves behind a smoother, slightly satin, appearance that I really like. Give it a try! - Andy
