You did not show how you made square holes.

I really want to try it myself.

What tool did you use to bore the square hole? Sorry, I am new to this.

Care to share quantities? I have the wax...

dpmakestuff (author)kainxavier2015-01-12

truth be told there quantities don't matter too much. 1-2oz beeswax into around a cup of mineral oil. Heat the oil on a double boiler, break up the wax and watch it melt. Once it's melted, put it in a container and let it harden. I made this batch a little think and use the heat gun to get it in all the tight spots. It's also completely food safe.
