I have a Full size Bed, Head board, sml foot brd & 9 Drawer dresser…

steve6678, I’m looking for goddard’s cabinetmaker’s paste wax. I’ve been using it for 35 yrs but have moved a bunch and am using up the last of the dozen I bought years ago (now regretting the two I gave away). My source from back then doesn’t exist anymore. Oh, and to answer your question from a yr ago, one tin would definitely do your bed and dresser three times or more if used sparingly.
I had no luck at shellac.net

Thanks

I use it. I have have had a tin for many years only about half gone. I think it is primarily beeswax, by the way it looks and smells.
