I have been waxing since Day One,,,,It works great! One thing to watch out for though is the static electricity that builds up as you polish it after putting it on and letting it dry. You can get some pretty good unexpected pokes when you touch metal or get close enough to it! My first table was built with metal studs as the framing with the MDF screwed to the studs and screw countersinks filled with bondo for a nice flat smooth surface. Dust would be polishing away,,,the static electricity would build up and as he passed over a bondo covered screw and "ZAP!!!""

My surface is also MDF wish countersunk screws, but coverd in wood putty. Did you wax the MDF? What sort of wax did you use?

I used Johnson's Paste Wax.
I put down formica for my table top and put down a couple layers of wax.
It will be trashed by the end of the project but it's easy to keep clean.

Ok enough with Powered Toast Man, just a little to silly for me I think.

I have completed the first practice lay up and it weighed in a 9-7/8 oz. This is a little lighter than called out for in the instructions. There are no voids or bubbles or anything so I can't think of why its so light. Perhaps the scale is not accurate. I will take the piece down to the post office and double check it there. It will be nice to know if my scale is even close.

More about this and other things on my blog....
