Colour
Size

Pure beeswax sticks designed for filling cracks and holes in timber. Can be sanded and buffed to a fine finish and coated with most materials. Available in black, dark brown, mid brown, orange, red brown or pale brown (natural beeswax colour). Colours can be blended. Use on raw timber before applying any other finish.

Used For

These coloured sticks are used for repairing cracks and small holes in most wood surfaces larger than about 1mm deep. Tiny cracks and imperfections can be filled with our  Cabinet Makers Wax.

Surface Preparation

Ensure the  surface is clean and dry before application. Beeswax Filler Sticks should be used before any application of oil, wax or lacquer finish.

How to Apply

The sticks can be melted a number of ways depending on the application. Generally speaking, they can be easily melted with a candle/lighter and dripped into the gap needing filling. Alternatively, you can soften one in a microwave (test in increments of a few seconds - it just needs to be malleable), then the softened stick can be pushed into the gap.  Another method is to chip off the quantity required and melt it into the gap using a heat gun or hair dryer. This needs to be done carefully as the additional heat may affect the surrounding finish. Exercise caution when melting as the wax is moderately flammable in this state. In all cases scrape back any excess immediately using a plastic spatula or credit card once before the wax hardens.

Dry Time

10 - 30 minutes depending on ambient temperature.
