Hi Katrina, thanks for posting here! I understand your conundrum for the wax recommendation. I tried to find National Trust in the US when I heard Johnson’s wasn’t making it anymore, but no luck. I’m guessing wax isn’t something that ships overseas well, so it could be difficult for your UK-based team to find recommendations for US woodworkers, but I look forward to any insights.
As a side note, I had difficulty finding the steel wool recommended further down that page (at the time … it seems to be available now). Instead I ordered one from Briwax (https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B003AXBPO4) and I’ve found it to be excellent. I don’t get all the stray steel particles like I did from the stuff at the big box store, and it comes in a roll so you can cut the size you need. If you get a chance to try it, perhaps it would be a good alternate recommendation (and more readily available) for US-based people?
Thank you and the team for all you do!
