Wax on blanks
Oct 5th, 2016 at 9:54pm
 
Picked up some small bowl blanks on ebay and they are waxed.  Is there a particular method for cleaning them, or do I just get them on the lathe and turn it off?

It's so easy to look like a noob around here.  LOL!

The wax is there to keep the blanks from drying too quickly and cracking. Just turn away when ready. Be aware that the wood will probably still be green.
