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:
Environmental preservation is very important to us and we make every effort to ensure our products have a minimal impact on the environment:
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.
I’ve been practising with the polish and have found it to be excellent. Revived a wooden window sill in my
Kitchen; which looks amazing with just a simple polish. The smell is amazing too. Can’t wait to start learning how to French polish. Your videos are great.
Recent project (early Regency sewing box) had a damaged, sun-bleached, very sad 220 year old rosewood veneer with pearl inlay and I've been avoiding restoring it for months because getting it wrong can make it even worse and sometimes completely unrecoverable. I'd found Gilboys on Youtube looking for French polish techniques a few months back and decided to check out the products on their website...purchased the trio starter kit to see how it got on...and genuinely, I cannot praise them enough - the stuff is amazing.
Used the Rose Gold Wax (after the most terrifying prep stage of all time - I can just about handle stripping Victorian but anything earlier practically gives me hives) and within seconds of buffing I knew I'd found something really special. Unsurpassed quality - and you can tell just by the way the wood behaves when it makes contact, literally drinks Gilboys - and the finish is simply gorgeous. The grain of the wood just popped immediately which doesn't happen with products that are stuffed with chemicals to give a faux sheen - you can tell everything in it is natural and specifically chosen for its properties.
The kit comes with the right grade wool and cotton buffer to apply - use them (!) and don't be tempted into thinking these innocuous items don't make a difference, they really do - and if you're in doubt about anything, find Gilboys on Youtube.
Much longer review than I meant to give - but I'm so impressed that I felt they really deserved me to take the time to write it. The whole world is obsessed with artificial, throw-away items and to find a company that are super talented, truly love what they do and what they make is so rare. Zero plastic in the packaging, personal note in the delivery, highest quality product they can make...just perfect - and so thank you! I'll never use anything again!
It took a little longer to write my review because you don’t ship to my country so I had to send it to someone to send to me 🙃 It really did a beautiful job on my furniture. I just had it refinished and was told not to use spray polish. You only need a small amount for a beautiful shine that repels water as well! You also receive a nice note and some seeds. Will definitely be ordering again
I was inspired by the utube video and ordered the starter kit. I finished off 2x
projects using the rose gold and antique gold polish and am delighted with both results. The lustre on the wood is excellent. Thoroughly recommend this brand.
FANTASTIC SERVICE AND FANTASTIC WAX
I have only just started to use your beeswax but so far it is performing brilliantly I thoroughly recommend these products and look forward to continuing to use this company in the future
Impressive packaging, original personalised message. Brilliant product. Used it straight away following advice. Lovely results. Will be back. Oh and sweet peas, nice touch.
My wife had been dropping some not so subtle hints about wanting this starter kit. She was ecstatic to get one for valentines day and is now polishing any nice piece of furniture we have!
Really great product, good packaging and information included. Looking forward to planting the seeds once the weather improves.
Ordered the beeswax starter kit it arrived promptly and was beautifully packaged with handwritten notes. When we buy online often the service feels impersonal but the inclusion of the note plus the sweet pea seeds confirms you are dealing with real people!. The product is amazing, I used it on a late 17th century walnut cabinet on stand, the stand like many is a 19th century replacement and to be honest I was considering replacing it or even painting it as the finish on the stand was so degraded and sun bleached (yes even in Scotland!). After a good polish with the Gilboys beeswax the finish has been transformed the colour and depth have been restored and the previously almost matt finish has now a good sheen. The waxes also smell lovely and of natural oils not nasty chemicals. This starter kit would be a fantastic gift for anyone that cares for their furniture. Well done Gilboys!
What can i say, I've only used the Rose Gold from this kit so far and it truely is a supperior porduct. The personal touches really made me feel like i was supporting a Bristsh Brand to be proud of. I'm so happy with this kit I will be ordering another kit soon as a birthday gift for my Dad and Gilboys will definatly be my Wax of choice in future.
