I have seen a thread or two on the topic, but am looking for recommendations for specific products that I might get on Amazon (links would be great).

Does the wax just maintain the wood or does it help keep it slick for flicking?

I have always used Trewax brand paste wax. It says it "contains" Brazilian carnauba wax, but it doesn't saw what percentage.

I have always purchased mine from the hardware store (Ace, Home Depot, etc.) in cans that look like this: (...though this one is not clear, it's mahogany...)

Other brands that have 100% carnauba wax are out there; I just haven't personally used them. BTW, one can (10-12 oz.) will last forever; it only takes a tad. Too much, and you'll spend forever buffing it off.
Mothers is a frequently mentioned one; just need the "step 3" here for your wooden crokinole board:

And another one I found with 100% carnauba wax is this:
http://www.amazon.com/S100-13700W-Carnauba-Paste-Harley-Davi...

Don't be fooled by the mention of "non-slip". That doesn't mean your board won't be slick when you buff the excess wax off and try flicking a disc across it. It just means that if you use this on floors, your shoes won't fly out from under you. (...'cause their soles are made of RUBBER!)

I hope this helps!

I finally found the Mother's Step 3 wax (100% carnauba wax, no cleaners) at Pep Boys. I definitely recommend it.
