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:
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.
My starter kit arrived promptly and beautifully presented. I have used the antique wax on a mahogany chest of drawers with one side particularly sun bleached. Although not a complete transformation, it would need french polishing for that, it certainly has a deeper shine and will cope with the onset of central heating more happily. One niggle is that the cloth is not edged so drops bits easily, otherwise the quality of everything is high.
Ps will be sowing the sweet peas soon.
I purchased the Beeswax starter kit which arrived in good time & was well packaged. I have only used the Pure Gold to wax the top of an oak floor cupboard which had been spoiled by various liquids. I had already used the Gilboys videos online to prepare the surface & I’m really happy with the results. (Note the coaster!) I intend to renovate an Ercol 203 & will be using Gilboys products to do this.
This might seem expensive but all half decent waxes are and a little of this wax goes a long way. I initially bought this after watching Steve do up an old oak table on YouTube. I followed the instructions having just bought an old 1920’s oak extending dining table. The results are a bit more rustic but this is probably due to the quality and cut of wood on the table and also my workmanship however I am very pleased with the results and it was well worth the effort. I also have enough wax left to do other items of furniture and have been able to use all of the colours in the starter pack , it’s still ongoing but it really has made a difference to the items I’ve done so farThe presentation box is lovely and would make a fantastic gift. Would recommend.
Excellent Beeswax. A top quality product and service with huge attention to personal detail. You can tell this business is extremely passionate about what they do and what they make. Not cheap, but the old adage buy cheap buy twice comes to mind. Oh they are Green and trying to lower carbon footprint too.
I was inspired by Simon Gilboys Tutorial on Youtube to purchase a starter pack of Beeswax polish to restore a Gateleg table. From delivery ( a long story, suffice to say I had a Senior Moment with the postcode) which did arrive at the postcode stated within the timescale. The polishes were presented beautifully, fit for any expensive purfume! which did get a lookin, in the shape of Sweet Pea Seeds, for the Bees, such a nice touch. As for the actual polishes they are excellent and brought the old neglected table back to life, glad I got the starter pack as I used 2 of the three on this project not knowing which colour I would need. Thank you Simon for your patience regarding delivery and for your handy hints. Shirley Smith
You just know when you buy gilboys polish the results are going to be, there are not too many things in life guaranteed but Gilboy’s wax polish is definitely one of them👍🏻
The parcel was received the next day and the presentation of the box contents was excellent The presentation card made it so personal.
I havent had the opportunity to use the polish on the project intended yet but have used the antique bees wax on previously polished furniture with great effect.If you enjoy the look of polished wood this polish is the best.
You have total confidence using these waxes as they are very high quality - I have used them to restore a Georgian tripod table and achieved a perfect finish.
I have only used the rose gold and pure gold on a test piece for finishing. The wax appears very high quality. BUT, the biggest difference I can tell is the smell. I’ve used several different brands of wax and I can say this one by far has the best smell. It’s not just tolerable but enjoyable. I wish I would have had it when I rewaxed our China cabinet in the kitchen. The house would have smelled much better.
Absolutely delighted with the product. Beautifully packaged, personalised message included just cuts above the average, detailed instructions on use. Would definitely recommend this to family and friends.
