How do you heat oil and how hot should it be?
I discussed my method a while back, before your time, in fact – here. Interesting discussion – I think the consensus was that it didn’t work. Works for me :-)

is that your basic floor paste wax or is it special expensive magical wood wax?
If you knew me you’d know how serious i take me waxin’ when I tell you I paid about 10 euros (10 bux, maybe) for a small pot of wax. But then I had almost no choice other than those aesosol things and that wasn’t what I was after. Horrified I was, but I figured I’d spent all that time, the wood, the wear and tear, the sandpaper etc etc so I shouldn’t scrimp on the bit you actually touch. Internet search found it, at last, I use this… starwax (sorry, could only find it in french). Pot has lasted well though … :-)
