    removing wax from stock? walnut.... UPDATED

    Hi fellas and fellets, ive put a few coats of beeswax on my walnut stock and it doesnt realllyyy give much of a finish, it does give a bit protection but you have to keep applying to keep it nice..

    Ideally i should have oiled it i think, id like to bring out the grain in the wood better and have a decent bit protection. Dont want shiney, just a satin sheen or whatever.

    Im sure i cant oilover the wax right?

    Any help appreciated, id really rather not sand anything lol but tell me what i need to do :)

    cheers gaz. :up:

    I removed some wax from a stock by using a scotchbrite to remove the bulk and white spirit to get into the grain.

    hi mate

    if it.s an oil based wax then use either turps or cellulose thinners, water based just give it a good wash down with warm water.

    cheers

    it will more than likely be an oil based wax mate. the water based wax is not used as much these days.

    cheers

    Card scraper - and the skills to sharpen and use effectively.

    Waxes are total bar-stewards to remove:-
    1 - Anything involving heat, sandpaper or solvents has a nasty tendency to sink the stuff further into the grain.
    2 - Preparations marked - "Contains beeswax", or "Beeswax Polish" - will contain many other substances.
    3 - Stuff marked "Wax Polish" often contains silicones - Welcome to refinishing hell.
