I just posted a new blog post about why one would use paste wax, lear or colored, on a project. A few good A-B photos. Take a look and let me know what you think, and whether or not you like to use paste wax. http://dcwwoodworks.com/blog/2016/1...

Since 2010, I've been pursuing a passion for woodworking, learning both modern techniques and traditional hand tool methods for building furniture and trim carpentry. I've been inspired to learn about Chicago's rich Craftsman, Prairie, and Arts & Crafts tradition, and by my own modest 1903 frame house's style and decor. I've applied those aesthetics and philosophies to my own interests, and found a unique outlet to express myself. I now do woodworking and furniture building for myself and for clients. I blog and post about my woodworking adventures at http://dcwwoodworks.com. I also teach woodworking at the newly opened Midwest Woodworking School http://midwestwoodworkingschool.com
