hi- I have very little knowledge of wood working- I bought some wood on eBay to use making resin and wood jewellery and when it arrived the ends had been sealed with wax- can I remove this to work it or am I best sacrificing that bit of the wood?(some bits aren’t that big in the first place!)

It is there to help slow down the drying process and preventing splits. Just ignore it as it is not going to make any difference to the wood underneath. If ylou atre using bench tools might be an idea to scrape ot off as it can clog up some tools such as files, rasps etc.
