Used this on a pine wood mantle shelf over a woodburner, the wood outside of the heat shield is typically 60 deg C, this product is handling the temperature with ease!!
Great products and the video on YouTube on how to refinish mid-century teak table (2 part) is really helpful.
Beautiful finish on resanded floorboards - so much depth of colour brought out of the wood compared to the flat one-tone varnish/stain the previous owners had applied
I’d previously used osmo, applying this was a very similar experience - I’ve not done a like-for-like, but my general feel is that gilboys was more pleasant texture to apply and went further
Pictures are bare sanded to 120 grit (left somewhat rustic as I like the history to show) and then the colour after one coat to show the change. I was worried after sanding that the warmth was gone and the floors would look like the ashy grey polyeurethane finished or laminate floors - such a relief to see the colour come up again, while keeping the room much lighter than the old “antiquey style” varnish/stain that was on before. More coats doesn’t seem to impact the colour but the finish is far smoother and will obviously be more hardwearing
Very easy applying, I used a micro fibre cloth to wipe down (have had problems with overapplying osmo, so prefer to put the elbow grease in to make sure the coat was consistently thin) but it really didn’t take long to do a 144sq ft room. Drying overnight worked well, and the smell wasn’t strong at all compared to any other coatings or paint products I’ve used
Haven't had time to use the polish a lot yet but first results are excellent, as was the service. Delighted.
I used this to rejuvenate a pair of Edwardian chairs. It requires little to be applied and produces a lovely suppleness and slight sheen. It also has a pleasant, light scent, unlike some of the competitor's products, which rely on linseed. I highly recommend Gilboy's Leather Balsam.
Excellent product, exactly as expected.
Worked a treat removing rust stain streaks from cedar fence slats, see before and after pics from a treated offcut
My Dad has made me a desk from used and new oak. I brought this product after watching the video on YouTube and wanting a natural finish and loved the concept of natural ingredients. Dad said it goes on well and gave it 4 coats. I cannot see a difference between the recycled oak and new and love the finish. Photos look yellower than what I see by eye. Very happy to have such a unique and beautiful desk made with love.
I followed Simon's video and got great results. I was also delighted to recieve my box with little notes attached from Ian and Simon. It gave it such a personal touch. I wish I had talen before and after photos!
Really helps keep my Victorian mahogany dining table in great condition.
I'd already purchased one set to tackle some dark oak furniture, but I wanted this set for some lighter pieces. Once again it worked a treat, giving a lovely glow to a mid-oak bookcase and giving a very battered little box that I picked up from an antique shop a bit of much needed tlc (I may give it another go in a week or so's time, as although the overall colour is good, it's in need of more care, I think). I also used it on one of the dark oak chests, and it gave it just the 'lift' it needed. Definitely the best brand of wax polishes I've used. Thank you!
Only one word: 'Brilliant'
I ordered some furniture polish (Golden Antique Gold beeswax) and leather balsam. Both products are exactly as described and don't disappoint. I used the antique gold wax on the first top two drawers in my photo. The wax added depth of colour and shine compared to the dullness of the bottom unwaxed drawer. The wax is pleasant to use, smells nice and is also very good at covering small scratches on a light coloured furniture.
Simon himself was also very helpful and his videos are a pleasure to watch and very informative. I tried his recommendation to use steel wool to apply wax (which I initially thought was bizarre!) but worked like a charm and got rid of ingrained dirt.
We cannot praise this company enough. Good service..polite personal….wonderfully wrapped..super quick & best of all the absolutely the best product we are thrilled to have found them
This company is an absolute gem . We only wish other companies have had the same ethos
