I’m with Kazoo,

Before applying I’ll go over the top and remove any glue drips, etc, then wipe it down with mineral spirits (which removes any wax).
I just apply the wax with a soft cloth, working in small areas, usually the cast iron table top sections. I then buff it off/out with a clean rag.

I’m not too anal about buffing out, I just want the surface to be smooth and slick.
You can get wax transferred to your project, but it removes so easily and even the solvent in finishes will nullify it (I’ve tested this).

It is silicons in wax that can cause finishing grief, but even those are hard to transfer in enough quantity to cause problems.
