Has anyone used furniture wax or pledge on wooden sides?

I love the look of the wooden sides on my Kronos, but the finish of the wood is pretty dull. Has anyone tried to use any sort of wood care products on them to liven them up a bit like Pledge or Lemon Oil Polish? (Yeah, my Kronos is so vain.)

I'm not going to use any 'Pledge' type products on the wood. I'm not saying that Pledge is a bad product, but I think over time the wood will collect a waxy film. Maybe something that has a light oil base might work.

Actually,

mine has a real silky sheen just the way it is. It looks to me like it has some oiling already applied, (to stop it from drying and cracking over time).
My guess is that once you start waxing it, you'll have to continually wax it to keep the look you want. I think as Falcon suggested, a light oil of some sort would be the safest.

Old English red oil/furniture polish has an oil base and doesn't dry out the wood. I used this to protect the wood on my Hammond and leslie back in the day.

Was this a serious question?
