    Johnson's Floor Wax

    I may have posted about this before, but if I did I can't find it.
    I am repairing two antique dining room chairs made of teak for my daughter.
    After gluing up and coating with teak penetrating wood stain, to provide color match,
    I will coat the dried stain with Johnson's paste floor wax. It leaves a protected finish with a soft luster.
    A can if wax will last for years. If you have not tried it, you might want to.

    Is silicone included into the formula? Some woods don't "like" silicone.
    All the best.

    Interesting....

    Exactly which product is this?

    Good old Johnson's Paste wax or the Johnson' One Step?

    I coat my tools to prevent rust with this wax.

    Thanks Lowell!
    I use it (Johnson's Paste Wax) too on my cast iron.
    I was just curious if this was the One Step stuff that doesn't require buffing.
    I don't care a lot for the buffing out part of waxing.

    You might re-post your original comment on the Finishing Forum. Having just been there, one of the very knowledgeable people stated he would never apply a wax finish directly over stain. I have no personal experience.
    Rustic? Well, no. That was not my intention!

    I don't care what others do, it works for me. If you are concerned about it, try it on something that does not matter.
    It's good practice to try any thing new on something that doesn't matter.

    One of the visual appeals of older antique furniture is that way back then, it was frequently dusted then buffed with paste wax. Now, we coat everything in urethane. Sometimes older is better.
