In Part 4 we burnish the wood with some steel wool and then apply a final coat of wax.
This is the finish I apply to just about every one of my woodworking projects. I haven’t seen any other info on the web about it so I figured I’d put together a series of videos showing how I mix and apply it. See full description for more!

Part 4: Burnish & Wax (Coming Soon)
I’ve found that most woodworking finishes are a mix of three factors:
• Ease of application
• Time spent applying
• Beauty & Protection
And it’s usually a tradeoff: every finish only gets you two of the three in most cases. This one gives you beauty and ease of application in exchange for time: each coat takes a day to dry and you’ll usually want 4+ coats. But for me that’s a trade I’m willing to make as I think this is one of the most beautiful finishes you can get and it’s really easy to mix and apply.
I learned about this finish from my first woodworking course up in Orange County, CA with William Ng at his school: https://wnwoodworkingschool.com/
