I have a block of wood 6" cube that was waxed on all sides. I know it to keep it from check. But how do I use it? Ive had it a couple of years.

You normally remove the wax during whatever operations you use to make whatever shape you want from the blank.

Typically these are turning blanks, so a wood turner would merely mount in the lathe and then start to rough down the piece to begin the turning process.

You can use a hand plane or scraper to remove the wax. Do not try sanding, it will gum up the paper in a second or two.
