  • Paste wax?

    I notice alot of you use paste wax on your projects. This may be a dumb question but is the paste wax for cars and paste wax for wood the same product? Thanks.

    We use Johnson paste wax (furniture) as it has no silicone in it which is the problem in car waxes. Silicone will transfer to your wood causing it to stain.

      Mark, you don't want silicone on your wood as it will make it very difficult to apply a finish. You will get a "fisheye" finish. If your project has a finish on it and you want to apply a wax to it most use a wax such as Johnson's paste wax. Wax finishes should be redone done every so often though.

          I also use Johnson's on wood and on the table tops of my tools to keep them slick.

            I clean it up and stuff regularly. If I do a lot of typing, spreadsheets, etc., I use the computer as it’s faster for me but take the tablet to shows and markets to post from there. I also use my rapid resizer program on the tablet when I want to change a pattern and am downstairs. I really need a...

            Rolf, if your Picassa file works I want it!!! They cram so much into newer programs that it just complicates things and takes away intuitive stuff. Thank you for checking!

            Linda,
            Quote, I kept my old computer even though it was barely alive simply due to one particular program...Picassa by Google...which they removed from the market years ago. It worked like a combo photo and editing program but easier. It could take a photo and change it to a line drawing beautifully...
