Instead of bees wax try Black Bison wax usually available in good hardware/woodworker shops. After stripping the old paint off wipe with white spirts on a cloth. This will nutrilize the paint stripper and give you an idea of what it will look like. Black Bison wax comes in various colours. apply the first coat with very very fine wire wool. this will get it deep into the grain. Apply 2 more coats with a soft cloth and polish between coats. Do not apply varnish as this will eventually kill the wood
