About the wax...

Hi. I'm Noah. Growing up, my dad was a woodworker and I followed in (some of) his footsteps. I've apprenticed under a luthier, I've been a cook, I've been a firefighter, I've backpacked hundreds of miles, I've been a flyfishing guide, and I've travelled the world. But primarily, I am a woodworker and a restorer. I am also a husband of one amazing woman and a father to the best son and daughter a man could hope for. I am an expert in restoring historic buildings and furniture, and I routinely consult on (and restore) county, state, and federal buildings on the national historic register. I have been restoring axes and other handtools for nearly 20 years.

My wax/oil blend is a result of many years of research and experimentation with natural wood finishes, as well as my knowledge of wood and the outdoors. This handmade wax blend is partially based on antique recipes (some dating to over 500 years ago).
