Wax is a material pressed from a honeycomb. Wax can be used to make crafts by a wax worker.

Honeycombs are produced by honey bees at a hive and harvested as part of the beekeeping industry. A dwarf with the pressing labor active, a screw press, and empty jugs are required to press a honeycomb. A jug of honey is produced as a byproduct. Wax will be stored in a fat stockpile.

Wax has a low base value of 1, the same as wood or non-flux stone.

Bars of beeswax.
