Simply the best beeswax furniture polish for rosewood, light mahogany, cherry, and honey oak furniture or similar coloured woods.
This beeswax polishing kit contains everything you need to polish and protect the finish of your wood furniture:
We have developed our beeswax furniture polish to such a fine blend that you don't necessarily have to polish again for at least a year and possibly up to three years.
Made in the UK from the highest quality natural waxes to bring out the shine and protect your furniture:
Environmental preservation is very important to us and we make every effort to ensure our products have a minimal impact on the environment:
Weekly furniture maintenance of removing dust can be done by simply using a slightly damp cloth and drying if needed with a clean dry cloth - beeswax polish will protect the surface for a very long time.
If you have a larger surface like the side of a chest of drawers or the top of a dining table apply the beeswax more evenly by dabbing the surface all over with small amounts of polish and then wipe in the direction of the grain to spread the wax evenly.
For carved relief areas such as an antique coffer, you can also apply beeswax furniture polish with a cheap 1 inch trimmed paint brush. It makes applying the beeswax much easier and allows the polish to get right into those dusty and hard to reach areas. Buff it 20 to 30 minutes later with the soft shoe brush and buffing cloth.
First off, I have never restored furniture, so a complete novice here! My Father working in West Arfrica in the 1950s brought home two Mahogany Elephant tables. They ended up in my brothers garage for years before we got them back to my Dad. They were both badly stained and a little beaten up. I decided to do em up- watched many videos on YouTube but Gilboys stood out for me. I ordered a Rose Gold kit and found all the other bits n bobs id need for this project and began working on the first table. I followed the video almost to the letter (used Dutch Oil) and yesterday it was time to apply the Rose Gold polish. The results were staggering. The table looks great and to be honest it wasn't all that hard to do, need plenty elbow grease though!
I wouldnt hesitate for a second to recommend Gilboys to anyone who wants to restore or just polish up some wooden furniture.
A solid 10 out of 10! Thank you all at Gilboys.
Just as a side note ... the packaging and delivery were top notch too!!
Check my pics for a before and after shot!
Repolished a rosewood sofa and the surface has been totally revitalised. Many thanks
I discovered this product when searching YouTube to help me renovate my old roll top desk. Very impressed with the videos and investigated your website and found out about your polishes etc. Glad to say same high quality of the videos and I love the environment friendly product and quality of customer service. A real treat.
I still have the top section of the roll top to work on so now its a flat top desk!
Right from the beginning I knew Gilboy's was special! I was recently gifted a mid-century modern credenza, 8 ft long, with all of the requisite cigarette burns and black rings associated with the time and place of this piece of furniture. I knew I wanted to restore this beauty to its former glory but did not have the skills, yet. After watching a half dozen videos on restoring veneer, I came across Gilboy's on Youtube. Watching Simon refinish delicate veneer is a master class in technique and appropriate product use. I was very nervous, but after watching the videos, I was able to confidently select which products I wanted to use. I carefully sanded the entire piece and wiped it down with mineral spirits. I applied two coats of Fiddes Hard Wax Oil, letting coats dry in between for a day each. Then, I applied Gilboy's Rose Gold and Gold Beeswax, allowed 20-30 minutes dry time and buffed to a high shine. The piece looks stunning!
Not only are the videos and products top-notch, but the customer service, packaging and care taken to develop these superior products is just above and beyond. I highly recommend this 5 star company!
Dear Gilboys and girls,
I started this 'lockdown' bedroom furniture refurb project by painting a bookcase. Then a double wardrobe, double bed, and a pot cupboard. So far so good with all the mis- matched pine. I was then faced with a turn of the century mahogany chest of drawers. No way was I going to paint that! But it did look tired, dull drawer fronts, scratched top and in real need of feeding.
I then spent hours with the internet and found you lovely people. I watched the demo's, bought my polish and started as soon as the box arrived. I wish I'd taken a 'before' picture but I've attached the 'after' one. If a piece of furniture could be described as looking pleased with itself, then this one does. I'm trying to find two replacement knobs to complete it but, I have to say your polish is really lovely. No being as strong in't arm as I used to be, I polished after about 20 minutes and still it looks beautiful. The packaging and branding are superb. Good value for money and kind to the environment too.
P.S. I will try to get the sweet peas to grow, don't want to let 'father' down.
Best wax I have used (including the wax I make myself!! Really can't fault it. The videos on how to apply are very helpful. Quick question - if I want to 'build up' the wax for extra depth how long do you recommend leaving between waxes?
I am very happy with the wax. Very easy to work with, natural shine, beautifully packed. Thank you.
I'm not one to write reviews. But, I am one that has used numerous high end products on my furniture for proper care. Though many of theses products did work well, there was always something lacking to make me search for a better one. After using Gilboys, my search has ended. I was so pleased that I placed a second order.
I am at present restoring a dressing table the difference in the wood is astounding so pleased thank you for this miracle
Beautifully presented purchase. Wax has transformed a very sun bleached table.
