Video: How To Polish Like A Pro Using Our Furniture Polishing Starter Kit



polishing with beeswax starter kit

Everything you need to start polishing your furniture like a professional with the best beeswax polish:

  • 'pure gold' for use on light coloured woods such as Ash, Beech, Maple, Light Oak and Pine
  • 'rose gold' for use on rose coloured woods such as Rosewood, Light Mahogany, Cherry and Honey Oak
  • 'antique gold' for use on dark coloured woods such as Antique Oak, Mahogany, Walnut, and Elm
  • Our antique restorers' recommended ultra-soft '0000'-grade oil-free wire wool that cleans the surface as it applies the wax polish
  • Our antique restorers' recommended open-weave 100% cotton polishing cloth for easier buffing without streaks
  • A complimentary box of sweet pea seeds for you to plant and grow as a special 'Thank You' to the hard-working bees  **unfortunately this offer excludes USA due to FDA regulations

Perfect if you have one prize piece of wooden furniture or have two or three pieces of different types of wood. We have ensured there is enough in each tin to cover a single piece of furniture (depending on the absorption rate of the wood) such as dining table, gate-leg table, bureau, chest of drawers, or four to six dining chairs.

Ideal for anyone who would like to polish a single piece of furniture but may be unsure which shade to buy. 

If you would like to try your hand at beeswax polishing using the products professional restorers use, this kit is a great starting point.

Our beeswax furniture polish is made in the UK from the highest quality natural waxes we can source and is specially formulated to bring old furniture back to life:

100% NATURAL INGREDIENTS

  • The best triple-filtered beeswax, organically farmed and humanely harvested by the world renowned beekeepers at Buckfast Abbey
  • The finest natural T1-grade carnauba wax for longer lasting protection
  • The finest natural myrica, Japan and berry waxes we can source
  • Blended with nothing but pure pine gum spirits of turpentine in the traditional way
  • No white (mineral) spirits, No toluene, No aggressive petrochemical solvents and definitely NO SILICONE

ENVIRONMENTAL RESPONSIBILITY

Environmental preservation is very important to us and we make every effort to ensure our products have a minimal impact on the environment:
  • We are not driven by a corporate cost-reduction ethos. We select our components based on quality and sustainability rather than the cheapest alternatives
  • 100% Plastic-free recyclable packaging
    • Recycled cardboard and paper from FSC-approved mixed sources
    • Packing tape that is paper & cotton based with a water-based gum adhesive which can be recycled along with the cardboard boxes
    • No polypropylene-based tape. We use biodegradable raffia twine.
  • No petrochemical solvents, we use only pure pine gum spirits of turpentine
  • Our workshop roof is completely covered in solar panels and generates far more electricity than we consume

 HOW TO POLISH WITH BEESWAX

  1. For best results use our ultra-soft 0000-grade oil-free wire wool to apply the polish
  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 (15-20 minutes in temperate climates)
  4. Use our open-weave pure cotton buffing cloth to buff the wax with ease and without leaving streaks

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, 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 when completely dry with a soft shoe brush and buffing cloth.

Lovely stuff

Careful considerate manufacturers. Just what I wanted! Maybe should have used a prep as not quite enough for a super excess polish but a really nice job! Thank you x

I love Gilboy's!

After searching for a way to restore antique furniture, I found Simon on YouTube and thought his method seemed promising. So I purchased the starter kit and the wax cubes. Since I live in the US, I wasn't sure how long it would take to get to me, but the shipping was super fast! I have restored a mahogany dresser now and polished some chairs. I couldn't be more pleased with the results! They both look so beautiful! I'll be a customer for life!

Excellent wax

This is such a great wax. I applied it via the 0000 wire wool supplied to my rather shabby looking desk and it has turned out beautifully. I only gave it one coat and the difference is amazing. A really easy and quick process.
