If you watched the Workshop Companion Video, "Mixing Your Own Paste Wax," then you understand what goes into a can of paste wax and how to mix it. Now all you need is a good formula. In this short article, Autor/craftsman Nick Engler offers two recipes that you can use as a jumping off point. One recipe is for a "standard" paste wax that can be used on both wood and metal. The other is for a "food safe" paste wax for kitchen utensils, children's toys, and other objects where toxicity is a concern. Nick also includes a chart of waxes that are commonly used in paste wax blends to compare their attributes. 2 pages.
