HOW TO POLISH WITH BEESWAX

  1. Use a soft cloth or very fine 0000 wire wool
  2. With gentle pressure spread the polish evenly over the surface in the direction of the grain, being careful not to over apply and avoid any upholstered areas. Once applied the surface area should look matt in appearance
  3. Allow the pure pine turpentine to completely evaporate and the wax to harden for 20-30 minutes
  4. Use a soft buffing cloth to buff the wax to a deep and lustrous shine

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.

*SECRET TRADE TIP:

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.

    Love it

    Really enjoy the shine on my furniture.

    delightful

    Although this is rather expensive, it is so beautifully presented it felt like receiving a gift. I do not have antique furniture but having failed to find a replacement for our Jentique 80s dining set I decided to try to renovate it. I have so far only polished two chairs but they do look much better.

    Priceless!

    My grandad was a gearing engineer at David Brown Engineers for nearly 40 years, during that time he worked on tractors, tanks during the war effort & the iconic Aston Martin DB. At his retirement they gave him his warped & worn work stool to take home! Sadly my grandad passed away when I was young but fond memories & his work stool remained with me. To my shame, the workstool became neglected and paint splattered... many hours of angst on how to repair and restore it followed. I cleaned and repaired it but didn't know how to finish it! After much research I started to make enquiries about wax finishes but had no idea what wood it was made from and so felt very nervous. A brief enquiry and a few photos to Gilboys and I had a full analysis of the wood and recommended product with 24 hours and with no charge or obligation. I ordered the Rose Gold pack and it was fabulous! Arriving promptly, beautifully presented and with a handwritten note. I used the pack and instructions (& planted my sweet peas for the bees!) and the results speak for themselves!! A truly priceless service & product - thank you xx

    Nobody does it better

    Following a USPS shipping blunder, Simon immediately sent a replacement order which was perfectly received in California. This is an exquisite product that will strongly confirm one's good taste and style. Thanks Simon and Ian.

    Amazing company, amazing product!

    I contacted Simon when I started to look at restoring a Victorian Sideboard, he gave me advice on how to achieve the look I was after. The sideboard was stripped and re-waxed with Gilboys Rose Gold Wax. The Rose Gold Wax was amazing!! My best purchase for a long time, went on beautifully and has made such a difference.

    Excellent product

    The Rose gold polishing kit arrived beautifully packaged with a personalised note.
    It has totally revived our yew furniture. Each piece has a subtle sheen with the grain showing through beautifully.
    Be prepared to use some elbow grease - it is certainly worth the effort!

    Fantastic product

    I hardly ever leave reviews, but the care and effort the team have put into this product deserves to be recognised. Beautifully and thoughtfully packaged item. We’ve applied the first coat to a very neglected piece of wood and it has transformed it. Thank you.

    Outstanding product and advice

    We happened upon this company on You tube where the owner, Simon, has an excellent range of films explaining how to restore different types of wood & furniture. We contacted the company for advice and received the most excellent personal reply with detailed instructions about the whole process. At no point did the company give us the hard sell, they just suggested we use their wax to finish off the job.
    We bought the recommended strippers and sealants from a hardware shop and ordered Rose Gold polishing wax from Gilboys.
    WE HAVE NEVER RECEIVED SUCH A BEAUTIFULLY PACKAGED product from ANY company. It was a joy!
    The polishing wax arrived in a smart box with a hand written note. It was in a traditional recyclable jar with beautifully presented wire wool and cotton dusters, a stunning little block of solid beeswax to fill holes, cracks etc, decorated with a GILDED bee ... a thing of beauty.. AND a tiny box containing sweet pea seeds to encourage bees in your garden.
    In addition to this, when you return the recyclable jar Gilboys gives a discount on your next order, and to make things easier they include an addressed label.
    We genuinely think this one of the most thoughtful, professional companies we have ever encountered and urge anyone interested in caring for or restoring wooden furniture to consider Gilboys and follow Simon on You tube.
