    Don't know whether to say thank you, informative, or useful!!!!!! Thanks Rocky, appreciate it. This friend has never done anything with it, has thought about candle making, but has just collected it. Will just offer him something in the reasonable area (around your price) and then I can experiment. Thanks!!

    Not a problem. If it's in bigger cakes Garry, you can drop it in the freezer for a day or so and get it good and cold and break smaller chunks off with a hammer and chisel.

    Watch your heat when melting. Beeswax melts at about 140 o f, will scorch at around 180-185, and flash point is around 225 if I recall correctly.

    Hello everyone,

    Turned another Crow Call today out of Weathered Maple and applied three coats of the "Paste" and then burnished each coat in with a strip of leather. Tomorrow I will apply the first coat of the "Wax" on it. Just a short time burnishing the first two coats and they get sucked into the wood, not only can I see it but also feel it. I really like the deepening of the color in the wood.

    Have a great day,

    ThomasT
