I dig it! I always hit mine with a heat gun to chase any excess oil out of the pores in the wood before waxing. Seems to help the wax coat keep an even sheen
I don't have a heat gun. Does a hair dryer get hot enough?
Probably will. I actually don't have a hair dryer here lol
:lol:
Because you have no hair?

First coat of Howard's feed n wax, I'll do one more than hit the buffer with some carnuba. Gonna let it dry first for a few hours.

Possibly, you could also just smoke it and wipe off the excess. When I go for a matte sheen I'll hit the pipe quick and heavy with a cleaner dipped in shellac and wipe it off right after.

I don't use one either but my wife does and now I'm going to have to ask her to use it which will require me to answer many many questions. Lol

Luckily my wife stopped questioning me long ago. I think she just chalked it up to insanity
