A Plug for Skidmore - Beeswax Products Extraordinaire!

At least seven years ago, I found an article in one of my regular magazines - I believe it was Country Home - that recommended Skidmore's Beeswax products for all good furniture pieces as a cleaner, polisher and sealer.  I bought the products at the time and have been using them ever since to clean woodwork and to add luster and moisture to good wooden pieces.   I just placed another order for Liquid Beeswax Cream which I use to oil wood and add luster and shine to pieces that are in pretty good shape and fairly clean.  For pieces that need a little more - perhaps they are very soiled and stained or a little rough - I use the Restoration Cream and work it in with fine steel wool.  
Skidmore Products
Here's there website and a blurb from the owner - link link to website.
Here at Skidmore's, we make natural treatments for restoration, conditioning, and protecting all the leather and wood in your life. We pride ourselves on being environmentally friendly at Skidmore's. We recycle everything coming in or going out. Styrofoam peanuts too.
This is a collection of useful products I have invented over the years.  I produce these products in small batches, by hand, in my shops at home.  I know you may have been using my stuff for years and maybe never thought about it, but everything we make is produced right here at home by us.  I have spent my entire life making things out of leather, wood, metal, stone, and glass, and these products are a result of that work.  They are also a gift from the universe for which I am grateful.  Thanks for trying them.
