Having spent a considerable amount of time trawling the internet for straightforward and informative video's on furniture restoration, I was fortunate enough to come across Gilboy's. The video's are excellent and Simons passion for his work and products was infectious. As a result I purchased the Furniture Polishing Starter Kit, closely followed by the Beeswax Scratch Repair Cubes - everything you would need to bring even the worst piece of neglected furniture back to life. Excellent products backed up with superb service!
The wire wool was so soft and was perfect for the job. Would definitely recommend this wire wool for all your furniture restorations.
The starter kit contains just what you need to get started! I’ve used it to polish some tired mid-century teak furniture. It brings out the warmth in the wood & smells great too!
I am a complete novice and wanted to restore an antique writing desk. I watched numerous videos of Simon working with furniture then emailed for advice. I am so grateful for the advice sent by Simon. I have done it and am so happy with the result. It is a dark piece of furniture and he suggested I use the Antique Gold. He also suggested I strip back only the top which was scratched and marked and gave me a list of what I would need. It looks great! Thank you so much for your help.
This is my second purchase of waxes from Gilboy's and I must comment on what a superior wax this is, just look at the photos to see the finish! I have used the Antique Gold and Pure Gold on these 2 projects the finish is wonderful!
I have been redoing my chair as it was a dark and I wanted it to match the other furniture we have in our garden room. After watching the videos numerous times I eventually ordered the pure gold wax along with steel wool and polishing cloths. I have today just finished my chair and I could not be happier with the result. Would definitely recommend using Gilboys products to anyone. Simon replied to an email giving me advise, which was very helpful. Thank you to all the team 😊.
I can thoroughly recommend this product a beautiful wax. I used the pine colour on an old bookcase that I recently acquired and look forward to purchasing more product to try out on future projects:). I love the you tube videos they are very informative and it is great to see the transformations.
Excellent product, very pleased with the results and grateful for the help and advice when I called. Thank you
Bought three lots of the starter kits to give to my daughters as Christmas Gifts (Yes, shop early is my motto). I know they'll be blown away by the quality of these but may not be so having to use a little elbow grease lol.
This is a great way to get started the package contains just what you need, wax polish, cloth, wire wool & a handy guide. The recyclable packaging, the hand written card & sweet pea seeds are added delight. After 1 quick go, our table looks better already.
I really enjoyed using the kit to repair and renew chairs that had belonged to a relative. Really cathartic process and would not have done it without finding the on line vidoes from Gilboys and the starter kit.
Thank you so much for your help on the telephone, I followed your instructions and the results are excellent!
I have an Etsy shop that has some wood products with an optional wax finish. Gilboy's wax is awesome. I really love using it, and I love that it's all natural. They have a customer for life.
Customer service was impeccable, thank you very much for your help and advice. The product arrived very promptly and was beautifully packaged. The project isn't finished yet, but early signs are of great results. I would (and have) thoroughly recommend!
