    i finished a stock with Johnson’s paste wax as the last step. It’s alright but I might like a bit more sheen. Carnauba wax should do the trick, any issues with using carnauba wax over paste wax?

    Should I strip the current wax finish? I would prefer not to

    Hit it with some Pledge for a bit of shine.

    The Carnauba wax will remove the Johnson's Wax. Like removes like. Just wax over it and buff it out.
