View Full Version : Boardwax / Handlewax Sale

I needed some boardwax for myself but it's not something that I can just do for one jar so I made up a big batch and decided to sell the extras. I'm offering them here only (not available in our store).


100% Pure Beeswax & Food Grade Mineral Oil Mix
This "cutting board & knife handle wax" is a custom blend of 100% pure beeswax (purchased from local Amish folks here in PA) and food grade mineral oil. It's made by us so we know exactly what's in the mix - no additives - just beeswax and mineral oil.

Uses
Wood cutting boards/butcher blocks, wood bowls, wooden utensils, knife blocks, wood knife racks, & knife handles. This wax works especially well on Japanese ho wood handles and sayas. It pulls the dirt out while leaving behind a protective barrier.


To use, spread a liberal amount onto wood surface and allow to set in for 5 - 10 minutes. Buff off excess with a clean soft cloth/rag. Repeat once a week for cutting boards. Mixture can be warmed (if desired) in the microwave (remove metal lid first though) to help spread easier and to absorb into the wood better.


Comes packaged in a "wide mouth" glass canning jar.


Sizes & Costs
There are two sizes available, 8oz & 16oz

8oz - $9.00
16oz - $17.00



Purchasing
To purchase, shoot me a PM along with your Paypal email address & zip code (or country if outside the US) and I'll reply by sending you a Paypal invoice.

USPS Priority shipping will be used as the carrier.


Limited quantity available!

PS - for those of you who have purchased this from us in the past, this batch is going to be a smoother easier to apply formulation (like that fancy word, eh?). I've been tweaking the recipe over time and now have what I feel is a good blend going on that provides good protection while being easy to apply.

For those of you who are curious about this stuff let me assure you that it works great, especially on handles. Unless you're a turtle or some other long-lived creature one jar will probably last you a lifetime too.

Used Dave's product on Boardsmith cherry board and Stefan's handle in the pic at left and they brightened up - kinda don't want to cut on the board :biggrin:
Waxed all cutting boards and a knife block. Old boards got a 2nd coat - all look great.
Also did 2 handles and sayas - 1 got darker and glossy the other stayed the same color but shinier.

Can I pre-order 1 of the 16oz jars and 1 of the 8 oz jars if those are the sizes available?

Dangit! Just received some "board butter" from the BoardSMITH. I guess I'll have to place an order for some of this when it becomes available, and be done ordering "board wax" for the next 10 years.. lol



Dave, when this becomes available again, can you update this thread so I can get in touch with you?


Thanks, and have a nice weekend.

Will do Nick

FYI - David BoardSMITH's board butter is the same stuff with a different consistency. His is a liquid where mine is a wax. David's butter soaks in quicker and I'm sure deeper where mine is a surface treatment.

Hmm.. so they can work in a synergistic way? Board butter for penetration say every 3-4 weeks, and your "wax" , say every 2 weeks or so? What do you think?

Well it's going to come off as me looking like a salesman on this one but I'll answer yes anyway since it might be a great way to go.

Applied this to a board and some wooden utensils today, great texture on this formulation.
I think you've got the proportions figured out Dave. :thumbsup:
Not only is this a better product than my attempt, but the Mrs thanks you for sparing the mess in our kitchen this time :)

Also good when you're done with the knife handles to rub the excess on dry elbows and knees. If Dave started putting fragrance in it, you could buy it for your spouse then steal some for your knives. :D

My wife asked me for some of this stuff scented so I made her a jar with peppermint oil added. She loves the stuff when her hands get chapped, she puts this stuff on, slips her hands into some fancy white cotton gloves, and hits the sack. Such decadence!

Not to undercut future sales, but in general, this is roughly half wax half mineral oil? I have made a few small amounts for single days use on my stuff but have been thinking if trying larger amounts and wanted to see if anyone has certain suggestions or links to throw out there

OK thanks, with shipping being so prohibitive to canada I will likely continue to make some on my own, altho buying it from you would likely be a lot easier :)

what would be the shipping price (ballpark) for the larger jar to canada? Thanks

Dave Martell
01-27-2014, 09:38 PM
I oversold (the 8oz'ers) and need to make more (ran out of oil). I'll get the oil tomorrow and make them up tomorrow night. Sorry for the delay here guys.

All others (16oz'ers) are shipping out tomorrow morning.
