I have used for this project beewax and antique waxing after striping old paint and also upholstered.
I discovered Gilboy’s after watching some of the great YouTube videos and purchased the wax repair blocks from the shop.
The chair in the photos had a large split in the seat that was easy to fill using the dark block and following the instructions in the video. Although you can see the repair in the enlarged close-up photograph it is hardly noticeable after polishing. I used a candle to heat the block, but it is worth mentioning that this is not suitable for the pale-coloured block as it leaves a dark residue in the melting wax. I used a butane lighter to melt the pale block to avoid this happening.
I was amused to see that these come nicely wrapped and look like a present of three delicious fancy dark, milk and white chocolates!
Perfect colour and got rid of the scratch- barely visible now. Would but again
Bought this as a Christmas present to myself! Absolutely worth it! So simple to use, works perfectly and found that watching Gilboys video's helped cover any questions I may have had about using the product.
I came across the YouTube videos for Gilboys when looking into how to restore my eBay find mahogany boat table. The original finish was Shellac. There was some water damage and quite a few deep scratches , and some holes. These wax cubes have filled scratches, holes and provided a protective layer to the inlay, which otherwise discoloured from varnish. I would have loved to French polish this, but it is going back into a boat, which would not be kind to a French Polish, so varnish it was. The table does not look like new- that was never the intention, but I am very pleased with the way it turned out. I have enjoyed the videos and the cubes are fab. ( I think I might have to look out for something on eBay to French polish anyway just so I can use more of Gilboys products.
Great product especially for deeper scratches. Would recommend this product.
Always a delight to order and receive purchases from Gilboy's, prompt pleasant service and personlised with a lovely thank you note and gift of sweetpeas. Thank you for such lovely service.
Perfect for scratch repair. Easy to use. High quality wax
A client of mine asked me to strip and wax a 'rustic' dining table - It hadn't been touched for ten years at the very least... There were cracks and checks that needed filling [a hygiene thing] - I watched one and then all of Simon's videos on Youtube... Bought their products... Followed each step Simon had laid out and it was as simple as that... Wonderful.
Excellent product's being a french polisher for 34 years i use filling wax virtually every day, this is a first class product.
