I’m planning to turn a bowl blank into a spice container for my wife for Christmas similar to:

Do I need to / should I remove the protective wax before I begin cutting into the wood? I plan to cut the top, then drill and rout out the waste, then cut to shape and so on.

If so, what is the best way to remove the wax?

It will be interesting to find out. I would think you just leave it on and turn it.

I don’t remove the wax first.

Have your say...
