The wax is used as a means of keeping the wood wet, so a turner has an easier time in roughing out whatever they make. This means the wood will be wet, and will need to dry up before you use it. If you are making keys, best to trim it down to a close size then let it dry completely (let it set in your house in a lightly ventilated area for a few weeks) before you make the final dimensions.
