Wax or No Wax


Recommended Posts

I just completed a cherry gun cabinet. I applied shellac for the finish. The wood has the typical “salmon” color which is typical with the cherry that I’ve worked with in the past. I know that the wood darkens as it ages and like the darker (wine-like) color. My question is; does applying furniture wax slow this darkening process because of its effect on sunlight...?
