>I use the Beall system with tripoli, white diamond and carnuba wax as provided. My typical finish is Lee Valley's Polymerized Tung oil which is usually gloss but I have sometimes cut the gloss with some of their sealer.
I am wondering just what the wax is providing me since PTO is very durable and has plenty of shine. I have had some comments from people I have given bowls to that after a while the finish isn't as nice as it originally was and I have re-buffed the wax to correct it. Nothing serious just a little shopworn from being handled. I don't think I am putting too much on.
Is the wax really worth putting on? I must admit it sure makes the bowl feel nice.
