    This is a supplement to the other post above.

    Supplies
    Waxing Iron
    Wax
    Scraper (polycarbonate/lexan works best)
    3m Scotch Pad (not steel wool)
    Cork ( i take wine corks and cut then in 1/2)


    ok get your iron to the appropriate temperature so your wax melts easily but doesnt smoke and drip a decent amount of drops onto your boards.

    next slowly slide the iron across the boards, I use an " X " Pattern to evenly distribute the wax across the entire base.

    Take your scraper and going longways scrape the excess wax off of the boards. You might have alot come off and you might have a little, no big deal.

    After you're done scraping, take your scotchbrite pad and scuff the wax until it looks shiny and smooth.

    and, optional after that take your cork half and do the same thing.

    take a small metal scraper to clean off your edges. And finally,


    fasten seatbelts, place tray tables in upright positions, and you are ready for takeoff.

    Nice pics.......Artsy..
    What are you scraping with just a piece of plastic???? and are you only doing the base or do you go all the way to the head and tail??

    I'm always told by the shop guys to scrap head to tail or you could ruin the grain...

    instead of a scotchbrite pad or cork, i use a metal brush and finish off with a softer brush afterwards.
