This mid century Bureau looked like it had a hard life when i purchased it. After all the cleaning, joinery repairs and adjustment it was time to get some oil on.
The Gilboys wax oil was a dream to work with. As a carpenter & joiner I have used many well know products over 25+ years.
Right from the tin you could tell this was good quality. It was really easy to apply with a cloth and absorbed well, smells amazing! The original veneer came back to life instantly.
This piece needed 3 coat and dried as I hoped. Next I used the Rose Gold wax which added vintage tones and a super finish.
I did contact Gilboys about drying times, Simon was super helpful and friendly.
Gilboys products will be used for my future restorations
I am delighted with your products, I decided to practice on a small side table which had been badly marked and damaged by previous owners, it is now beautifully smooth and restored to enable it to now be on show, Thankyou Gilboys
After deciding to restore some 1960's Austrlaian modernis furniture, I jumped onto Youtube to learn what to do. I came across Simon's Youtube vids and I was sold! Ordered the sealing wax and the polishing wax, and I cannot believe just how amazing the timber on the chairs have come up! And talk about easy to use! I feel like restoring everything! Will definitley be ordering more once this batch has been depleted. Thank you Gilboys for such a great product. It truly has transformed these chairs!
Very prompt delivery of beautifully packaged product. Excellent design to complement the top quality product. Thank you for this and for the practical, encouraging, informative video guides.
The rose gold wax really bought the wood on a very tired midcentury chair back to life. This is such a lovely product, easy to use, it smells great and gives such good results. All that AND it was beautifully packaged.
Bought this to renovate a second hand G plan extendable table. Extension panel was a lot darker than the rest of the table. Used clear on the panel and rose gold on the rest of the table and it has really helped to balance out the colour. Lots of small dinks and patches also hardly visible now.. This was just with waxing; I did not sand down the original at all. Am now eying up the rest of my furniture to see what I can do with this gorgeous stuff.
I am really impressed with the beeswax polishing kit I received. It's made my haggard wooden furniture look much better and I'm amazed at how easy it is to use. Will buy more in the future, Gilboy's provide a great service and live the youtube videos.
The products are beautiful to work with, I have completed a small side table, it looks great, I am delighted with the results. Products also beautifully presented in box, which would make a lovely gift.
Maybe I did something wrong. I used it on 3 items and did not get the results I was hoping for. I followed directions but the polish would not adhere well so when I buffed I saw very little to no difference. Perhaps you can give me some expert tips? Thank you.
I received my box of goodies very quickly. The Rose gold has put a mighty shine on a coffee table that needed lots of TLC and it smells divine. My friends have been asking what I used so hopefully you will get some future orders.
I also got the leather balm and my ox blood red knee length boots look like new and are once again water resistant.
The products are so easy to use and fab results
