Welcome to LJ’s Rick, the lumber mill I have by me uses wax as well to keep the boards wet. When ever I start a new project I clean all the wax off with my glue scraper, and let it dry for at Keats a month or two depending o. What the humidity is and what my moisture meter says. I had ordered wood through the Internet a few times and it’s been hit or miss, depending on who you deal with, I’ve received boards that were soaking wet and wrapped in butcher paper and several that were not dried properly and where split when I opened the box. It sounds like a reputable place so I would stick with that place. I use a lot of hard maple which is very dense and machines very well, it does not take dark stain to well without some prep work, but that’s the trade off.

Good luck and reach out when you have a question, if I can help I will, if I can’t I won’t, but I am sure someone here can help, I ve never been let down.
