Can anyone ID these chairs? They don't seem to be HM or Krueger.

Zissou,

No prob, I usually let it cure for a couple days, then apply museam wax. Then use. Also, for something that gets lighter use then a table, I'll apply it in a wipe on fashion like any other oil finish, build up enough that it starts to fill in the grain and leave a low luster. Just something to keep in mind if you restore other peices.

I don't think that's it. The back looks more narrow, and the base looks different.

My brother's fiance bought five of them for $75 locally, and the sticker on them reads "AMK Retro White Bucket chair".

It's either them or some sort of replica.

How did you work that out?

I've actually been wiping it on so far, but I think I might brush the last couple of coats to build a slightly heavier layer. The grain is just sparkling in the light- really beautiful.

What is museum wax? I have some Howard Feed N Wax that I was thinking of using. It contains orange oil, carnauba wax, and beeswax.

Not a DSX. That's a DSS.

Continue wiping on the finish, really buff it in for the last few coats. You're probably half way done, I would air on the side of too much, which is hard to achieve when wiping on. Really burnish the final coats (like you are buffing). If you wax, just keep in mind you won't be able to touch up the finish without removing the wax. The museam wax is literally named that and it is very nice stuff, it hardens fast and actually buffs out to a nice even finish.

The only museum wax I see seems to be something designed to mount things and hold them in place (not a furniture product although it is sold by home depot).

Is this just a clever use of the product or are we talking about something different?

Sorry, it's actually called Renaissance wax. It's a microcrystalline wax with many uses. I actually use it to protect chrome as well.
