I am looking for a Shellawax substitute due to the cost of Shellawax. Any suggestion’s? And with those that had used Shellawax how long before it goes bad or will it? It just seems to be expensive.
Thanks

Exactly Bill. For filling in the end grain before finish or oil. Thanks for the info!

You’re welcome. The Hut Wax stuff is pretty cool. I have some turnings that have been “waxed” for several yaers. They still retain the polish. Shellac as a final finish? Maybe? Think about it.

Well the shellawax fills the end grains from what I understand and then you can add any finish to it afterwards. Will the Hut Wax allow that? From what I read I am not sure. But I like the price a lot better than Shellawax. :-)
