Wax is the poorest finish you could use. Wax has little or no protective qualities and as said previously will develop white rings where wet glasses or cups are placed. Also, you will need to refresh the wax ever few weeks to maintain its appearance.

Much more protective, nicer looking and longer lasting finish is an oil/varnish mixture. You make your own. Mix equal parts of an oil based varnish or poly varnish, boiled linseed oil and mineral spirits. Wipe the mixture on fairly heavily, let it set for 15-30 minutes keeping it wet and then thoroughly wipe off the excess. Let it fully dry overnight and do it again the next day. Keep things off it for 3-4 days particularly wet bottomed glasses or cups.
