Where do you keep the beeswax/mineral oil finish?  In the freezer, refrigerator, shop? I ask because the container would seem to last a long time.  thanks.

I keep mine in the fridge, mainly because it's hot where I live and I find it's a bit soft if I leave it at room temperature.

I keep mine in my office and garage. I like the fridge idea.

Just on the bench.

Although, now heading into winter here, it is getting pretty solid. 
When I go to use it, I put it in a pot of hot water for a few minutes to soften up. 

Pretty runny in summer, but is fine.

Hi Hambone,

I agree with everyone who responded to your post. The paste wax will not spoil so you can store it in your shop or garage but it will get runny on a hot day. You can always pop it into your freezer for 30 minutes to an hour prior to using it and it will help thicken up.

I am confused. Don’t we want it soft and runny in order to paint with brush. ?
