I am using some of Presto's beautiful mouldings that have a really waxy finish... It is almost dull. Wondering if I should buff 'em up - or leave them au naturel? Let the customer deal with it?

I like leaving them as is...love that au naturel look. And I find them to be forgiving to work with
 
Paul, this particular one is 653, chestnut. Sample's not very waxy - must have been naturally buffed over time and use!
 
Roz,
Use an old shoe buffing brush to give the moulding a nice even sheen if you don't want the higher gloss that the rag gives.
 
I have some Turner mouldings and they have a very waxy finish, you can practically push the wax around. Acid etched look.
 
I too like to fit them up and give a nice buffing all around. Not too vigorous just too smooth out the finishes. Otherwise they have my finger prints on them
