γ€€γ€€The use of beeswax for hot wax treatment is a very suitable maintenance method for mahogany furniture. Wax is used to fill the space in the brown eyes of the wood itself, to replace part of the moisture in the wood, to form a protective layer, and to prevent changes in humidity from causing greater expansion and contraction of the wood.
