Before applying wax to my wooden surfaces, I checked it on a test piece first.
Last month, I did an oil test and found that the end grain absorbs oil differently to the side grain. This meant that the surface went darker. From my test, I learned that the wax does exactly the same...something i didn't think it would happen.
It is still too dark in comparison to the end grain that already has 3 coats. I beginning to question why i am wanting to apply a coat of wax... do i need it?!
