Hey guys! I've been building an outdoor cob bench/ampitheater in Southern California. I've finally come close to the end of this project, and I've been coating it in linseed oil. Because it's so large, about 600 sq ft of surface area, I've been thinking about buying a pre-made sealing wax for the finish. Preferable something that's super easy to apply and buff! I'd also like this finish to be very tough, as it is sure to get alot of use, so I'm wanting carnuba wax in the mix too. Anyone have any experience with the variety of waxes available? I'm considering:

Bioshield Hardwax #32: http://www.bioshieldpaint.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&products_id=120:8b1c02e7b4e3c0cd69fac9feb96ecb72

They're all in a similar price range of about $70-90.

Any thoughts?

Or has anyone mixed their own wax finish with carnuba & beeswax? Have a reliable recipe?

I would appreciate any insights!

Thanks!
