Made up Cynthia's bees wax and mineral oil (BWAMO ☺) concoction a couple of nights ago and tried it out for the first time this weekend.
It is truly great
Attached photo is a before and after comparison of Tasmanian Oak (eucalyptus regnans I think) from an old door frame. Brings out the grain and feels soft and smooth.

Thank you for the excellent post concerning the Cynthia's Paste Wax formula. This photo shows perfectly how useful the formula is for increasing the beauty of wood toys. It also protects the wood and makes it easier to keep wood toys clean. You can just wipe them with a damp cloth and their good as new.

I sometimes place the wood in a warming oven for awhile until it's about 140 degrees temperature. The paste wax then soaks in quickly and deeply for increased durability and waterproofing.
