Everything you need to start polishing your furniture like a professional with the best beeswax polishes.
Everything you need to start polishing your furniture like a professional with the best beeswax polish:
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:
HOW TO POLISH WITH BEESWAX
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.
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 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.
Worked perfectly for restoring Chinese rosewood furniture. Very, very happy
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 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 😊
Excellent product with everything needed inside. Excellent service.
Very happy to recommend these wax polishes. I bought the starter kit so I could try the different products across a range of antique wood furniture needing restoration. Loved the packaging when the it arrived - really nice touches; but more importantly the products are great. I've used across a number of different products - a 1920s french walnut dining table; a 19th century rosewood cupboard, an Edwardian partners desk and more ... and have had fabulous results with all of them.
Absolutely in awe of the polishes and the results I am getting! I've never polished wood before and I am loving it. I will probably want to get the scratch cubes in addition but absolutely fab little kit! Can't wait to do the rest of my furniture!
I purchased the furniture polishing starter kit as I was sure about the colour I needed for a dark piece of furniture. I also had a problem that Simon very kindly provided his expert advice on.
I got the impression that Gilboys have their customers and their furniture at the centre of everything they do.
Very very highly recommended
I received the starter kit and loved everything, especially the hand written note and sweet pea seeds. I like the ethics of your company, the online videos and obviously the polish!
Well done everyone.
