Soft wax is traditionally used on the insides pieces of furniture – such as drawers and shelves – to protect the bare wood and give it a nice, tactile feel.

It also can be used for lubricating wooden drawer slides and even wooden vise screws on your workbench. Some people even use it as a wax finish over an old finish on antiques.

Unlike traditional paste wax, soft wax soaks in quickly on bare wood and is easily buffed with a soft cloth to a matte finish. It also imparts a complex, pleasant smell thanks to the beeswax and solvents used to make the wax.

Our soft wax is made in small batches in Kentucky using a traditional French recipe. We use cosmetics-grade beeswax, Georgia turpentine harvested from longleaf pines and mineral spirits. Each tin contains 4 oz. of soft wax, enough for the interiors of two chests of drawers, for example.

Wipe on a thin coat of soft wax to bare wood using a clean rag. After five minutes, buff the surfaces with a second clean rag. Allow rags to dry before disposing of them.
