Hand Waxing - brings out the luster in fine wood finishes. A skilled artisan applies a special formulation of wax and rubs it to a high sheen. The formula, which contains beeswax and carnauba, produces a long-lasting shine which brings out the depth of complex multi-step finishes.
Sheen Level - refers to the degree of 'shine' that appears on a piece of furniture. Each finish has a pre-determine standard sheen level. The varying degrees of sheen are Low (5,10), Medium (20,30), and High (50,70). For some finishes the top of an item is rubbed by hand or machine to reach an even higher degree of shine.
