I was recommended Gilboy’s products by my sister, she had returned a family dining table to its former glory using Gilboy’s wax.
I have used their Pure Gold wax as part of a restoration procedure on an antique gaming table and it looks fantastic. I have also used Antiqe Gold to restore depth of colour to my sun damaged mahogany bed.
I would definitely recommend Gilboy’s products, it’s given me a great sense of achievement to see such fantastic results.
Used on an 18th C oak table which had been somewhat neglected. One treatment and it has restored it beautifully. The finish is durable and easily buffed up. Really pleased and significantly better than other products which have left a softer finish. Recommended ++.
Lovely products, beautifully packaged, impressively fast delivery. I found the wax worked brilliantly on the solid wood of the frames (on a nest of mid century teak coffee tables) but not quite such a good result on the veneered table tops, but this was almost certainly due to the diminished quality of the elderly veneer rather than the furniture wax. I will definitely use this wax again (next project is an Ercol table restoration so no veneer worries there!). Would happily recommend.
Haven’t used yet.
Excellent product and very nice packaging
Gorgeous personalised packaging and great product.
Worked perfectly for restoring Chinese rosewood furniture. Very, very happy
After looking at your You Tube video I purchased a jar of your Antique Gold polish to try and restore the colour of a sun bleached bookcase.
Unfortunately after applying several coats it was not possible to fully store the original colour in the sun bleached areas. (see photos)
It probably needs stripping back and re-polishing. Nevertheless the wax gave the bookcase a wonderful shine.
Absolutely blown away with product and follow up customer service thought Xmas had arrived early fabulous packaging and love the seeds
Beautifully packaged. Great product. Slight delay with delivery, but think that was a Royal Mail problem. Delighted with my purchase.
I used the repair cube on my mahogany dining table which was covered in numerous scratches. The cubes are little squares of magic! Although they didn’t completely make the scratches go away they were greatly diminished and saved me the cost of a French polish. Following use of a Gilboys wax, there is a now beautiful luxurious lustre to the wood.
Very happy and very highly recommended
Hi , many thanks for a great product works really well and easy to use . Lovely presentation box as well and a box of my favourites sweet peas. I’ve already ordered a polishing kirt as a present . Photo is of a stool I’ve just finished
Having used the starter kit I have now re-ordered the Antique Gold and will re-order the Rose when needed. They produce superb results and are very easy to work with.
I used this on all the leatherwork of the rockinghorseheaven.com horses so they could go to their new homes looking fantastic.
I purchased this to restore a badly damaged finish for one of my customers. A full sand and refinish was not wanted. This product did a great job of giving it a decent "refreshening". The customer was very satisfied as was I.
I found Gilboys on YouTube having searched for products to clean my Ercol furniture. Having watched the videos, I had high expectations for the product. My high expectations were exceeded when the Antique Gold Kit arrived. Ordering was very easy, my Kit arrived super quickly and was a delight to open. Attention to detail in the products and the packaging was superb. The personal card and inclusion of Sweet Pea seeds were really thoughtful. So far, I am delighted with the results on my furniture and the fresh polish smell. Just one coat has disguised some wear marks considerably and has enhanced the finish on the furniture with little effort on my part. It was a pleasure to use and see the results. I have no hesitation in recommending Gilboys for service and the quality of the products received. I also appreciate being able to obtain refills rather than purchasing new again. These kits would make lovely gifts.
The waxes and kit very much lived up to our expectations, particularly to the care and detail conveyed in the variety of extremely useful and well presented You Tube videos. Many thanks
I was so excited to receive my kit and can’t wait to use it on my pine fire surround. I’m currently decorating but once finished will be busy waxing. I’ve used this wax before for pine furniture and have also used other products. Gil boys is by far the best for finish and long lasting beauty, it also smells pleasant, unlike cheaper products. It is worth every penny. I loved my hand written note with my name on too. Gilboys care very much about customer service and quality, thank you all at Gilboys.
I have not used the products yet, and probably will not until the New Year.
I wanted to write a review for you which does your product and customer service justice and I don’t think I can!
The joy of getting a parcel in beautiful packaging with a hand written note thanking me and offering further help if needed is exceptional. The little details of including seeds to help the bees, the detail of the packaging including a how-to leaflet and not promotional bumpf, the jar, the offer of refilling the jar, the sustainability of your business is all delightful, admirable and honest.
Using the product was super easy, I liked that the instructions didn’t shout that I needed to use any other accessories bought from you, that a soft cloth would do. Clear ingredients meant that I trusted the product too. The pride you take in the ingredients is brilliant too. I like knowing the mix of wax from your sources.
The wax itself smells wonderful, a little goes a long way and it wasn’t too gummy, too slick, perfect consistency. Buffing it off was easy too- it didn’t dry rock solid, and honestly my furniture looks incredible.
I can’t attach before and after pics for two reasons- firstly the furniture is an heirloom which I don’t want to publish, but secondly I don’t have a decent ‘before’ picture to really see the difference. I am also going to do an old chair though, so I will send that.
If Gilboys ran for Prime Minister I’d vote for you. You got everything right. Thanks so much for preserving my only antique to my name and for making me smile. I hope you never change, thank you so much,
I bought the starter kit from Gilboys. It was above my expectations as was beautifully “staged” with a thoughtful thank you note too. I almost didn’t want to use it as it looked so perfect!!
When I did use it on my antique dining chairs and followed the guidance of the useful booklet ..., the polish really fed the wood and once buffed the carver really shone.
I will continue to use my pack in the future but when depleted will be definitely back for another pot .... very special.
Ps Loved the little gift of the sweet peas ... a lovely touch that made me happy 😊
Ordered this in the afternoon and was delivered 24 hours later. Got the gold polish for my pine topped table which was very dry and the original finish almost gone. Had to do it twice but now has a beautiful shine and feels gorgeous. Added bonus smells divine.
Bought to use on the furniture inside a 70 year old caravan, your polish was very good. Although the units have had a hard life (caravan was rented out for many years and so not particularly well looked after) and the veneer used was quite poor, ( being not long after the end of the Second World War) they have polished up very well. I needed to spend a lot of time stripping off the old varnish and grime, but the results have been very good, and preferable to the varnish I was thinking of using. I haven’t given them a second coat of polish yet, as that will be done when the6 are back in situ after all the other work, respirating etc has been done - probably in a years time!
