IMO all jigs need protection from absorbing liquids – you never know when liquid of some kind, spilled drink, dropped bucket, overspray from something, etc., and paste wax will wear away. All of mine get a coat or 2 of shellac, waxed or dewaxed. Many time liquid of some sort found its way onto a jig, and i was able to just wipe it off. If you think wax on bare wood is slick, try wax on shellac lightly sanded with 600. Its too cheap and easy to wipe, brush, or spray it on, and dries very quickly.
