    <div>Hey guys, my latest slingshot is all shaped, sanded, impregnated with boiled linseed oil, and burnished. I just need to finish it with wax before posting my pics. What kind of wax do you recommend to go on top of an oil finish?</div><div class="clear"></div><div class="signature_div">

    I use wood wax from the hardware store, light oak color, cost 10$, works great.

    <div>Thanks, I know I'm going to use a wood wax though. I'm looking for specific type and/or brand suggestions. Also, I want to use a clear wax, not tinted. This piece has naturally beautiful color and grain.</div><div class="clear"></div><div class="signature_div">
