Butcher's Boston Polish is the official name of a long-standing furniture wax. The company also makes Butcher's Bowling Alley Wax, which is another type of polish used on objects that are not made of wood. You can purchase a can of Butcher's wax from online vendors. The formula has been around for more than 100 years, according to the official Butcher's Wax Company.

Wood Furinture

Butcher's Boston Polish Amber Paste Wax can be used to polish wood furniture. Use it on leather, antiques, wood floors and wood instruments. It leaves a "light amber tone and satin finish" and a hard finish on the wood surface, according to the official Butcher's Wax Company website.

Sculptures and Objects Made of Non-wood Materials

Butcher's Wax Company makes another polishing product called Butcher's Bowling Alley Wax. This polish can be used on painted surfaces, metal surfaces, including copper, sculptures and concrete countertops. The wax polishes and protects these vulnerable surfaces without causing discolouration, according to the official website.

Damaged Wood

You also can use Butcher's wax to harden and strengthen weak parts of wood furniture. Old House Journal suggests building missing parts or rebuilding decaying parts of furniture by using epoxy patching compounds and a hand mould. Rub the section of wood needing to be duplicated with Butcher's wax, and press the compound over the section of the wood piece.
