Question for all of you? what waxes do you use and how do you apply them? do you have any videos of the waxing process?

Thank you

Nice work Austin.  I have used store bought wax and melted wax mixed with tung oil with good results on black walnut and mahogany.  On a hard wood like your working on I finished a corporate conference table of Indonesian Rosewood with wax but, after a month of use I had to take it back and strip the wax because of executive hand prints.  After striping the wax ( a very nasty process) I applied varnish mixed with mineral spirits in a 3/1 mix heavy on the spirits.  I used soft cloth and buffed the mix on till dry a small patch at a time overlapping as I went.  The result had all of the beauty of wax but the durability of a spray on finish.  I spoke with the company owner last summer and he is still thrilled with that table 30 years later.
