    I have seen variations of this finish all over so I decided to give it a shot. Not for hard wearing surfaces, but it is very easy and the results are wonderful. I don’t think the ratios are overly critical. If you replace the BLO with mineral oil, it is food safe. I think I may have found my “go to” finish.

    Looks good.
    I went with mineral oil on almost everything years ago for looks and simplicity.
    I’ll have to give this a shot.
    Where do you get your beeswax?

    Phil, I get mine from a local honey producer but online stores that supply candle makers will be able to hook you up. It usually goes for 6 – 8 bucks a pound.

    I got mine at a health food place. I am going to look into some local apiaries when I need more.

    Looks like a nice finish Jim. Thanks for sharing the video. One of my favorite finishes is the Tried and True Varnish oil which is a mix of linseed oil and natural varnish resins. The natural finishes are much nicer to work with.

    I’ve been using beeswax for years. I love the way it looks. it also great for bringing life back to old furniture.

    My favorite too

    Beeswax is pretty cheap on amazon, sold in little beads that dissolve easily

    @JimDaddyO, do you coat more than once? Do you follow up with a furniture paste was and buff it up? Thanks for the video by the way. You do a nice job.

    yes, when it cooled and hazed a bit I added more. I put on 3 coats. It has been sitting for a few days now and I will give it a light rub with a rag. I may add a coat of furniture wax to it, depending on how it looks. It feels nice too.

    That’s a great video on how to use bee’s wax. I will use this finish with mineral oil for surfaces that touch food.

    ThanX for the video Jim.
    I’m going to check with a local who sells honey and see if they deal with wax also.

    if you are talking about the guy who lives a few streets away, I believe he makes beeswax candles. The last time I went he had a bunch.

    @r-ice,
    Yea that’s the guy.
    Good to know he also deals in bees wax.

    I use Mineral oil and Bees wax on the salad spoons I make. I hit the wood with a heat gun and the oil just sucks in.

    I will try the BLO.

    Bet the smell is great !

    Nice finish, Jim. I also like the way beeswax works on wood finishes.


    @Lakelover
    , that’s a nice idea, using the heat gun!
