Re-waxing the garage door


· woodworking · finishing · wax ·

I've applied a new coat of wax to the workshop doors. This time, a mix of linseed and beeswax applied hot. It's just a matter of plonking the wax tin in a double boiler for a little while, and wearing gloves. The door had been in the sun all morning so the wood itself was pretty warm, and the whole thing took about five batches (although every time I do this it uses a bit less, as the expansion gaps get more and more filled with wax).
