Care of antique wood

  1. Hi Jessica!  Over the last decade, I've lived in a humid-ish climate - Germany, South Carolina, and Missouri.  All of which experience a little dryness over the winter months (with the heaters on) but plenty of humidity during the summertime.  I've recently moved to super dry New Mexico.  I have an antique English wardrobe (built in the 1880s) that I've been moving around with me since Germany.  Up until now, I hadn't thought about the climate.  However, since moving, I've found that the doors pieces rub more than normal and the pieces don't fit like they used to.  Should I be using wax on it in this dry climate?  Or will wax take away from the antique finish?  Or is there something else I should be using instead?  Thanks for your insight!
