(I know...dumb thread, paste wax is almost idiot proof..) I apologize for posting so many threads lately. I've come to the conclusion that high gloss finishes are not for me. I don't have spray equipment and the common thread I've seen watching all you guys get high gloss finishes is spray equipment. I've seen people get high gloss finishes without spray equipment but I'm no good with it. I'm OK with that. I've been experimenting with different finish options and I've found a couple I like...particularly a couple coats of Danish oil followed by a few coats of paste wax. Today I was experimenting further, but when I was buffing the wax, I kept getting whitish skids on the surface of the wood. Upon inspection, it appears to be wax that is just getting pushed around by the buffing wheel. About the buffing wheel...it's the Harbor Freight 6" buffer. Something like 3000rpms. Much too fast for most wood finishes I think, but I've read that heat is actually ideal for buffing wax, because you want it to melt or something. Anyways, yesterday, I didn't have this happening. Today was much more humid. Does this sound like I just didn't let the wax dry long enough? Or perhaps just bad buffing technique? The finish definitely feels silky and smooth like you'd expect from wax, but I'd like to figure out what's going on with the streaks.
