That’s a nice idea. My question was more to do with finishing tho. If you rub on wax with steel wool, dont the particles of the steel wool get embedded in the wax? Then pressed into the grain and then part of the finish? I haven’t understood why people use this method. Why not polish the piece with steel wool. Clean it off and then rub the wax on with a cloth? I was just trying to learn why these French polishers feel the wool has to be the applicating device.
