Using just the antique wax, A good finish was achieved on a small tea caddy that was only cleaned, not stripped. The next task is to see how weel the wax works on a fully stripped caddy.
Just finished my project - my first ever. I followed your You Tube instructions and it was very good to see the finished result. Everything was so easy to use and the result was as had been promised in the video. Would recommend to anyone wanting to bring a piece of wood back to it's natural beauty.
This is my second order of this amazing beeswax polish and it won't be the last.
Have recommended your company to a couple of furniture makers we know.
Great service and packaging. Sweet peas doing nicely. Have re-waxed old chest with good result. Also pushed out water stain on mahogany Edwardian chest. Now adding another polish to wood around the house. Thanks to Simon for additional advice over the phone.
This product is far superior to what’s available here in Norway. Surperb delivery, communication. Highly recommend products from Gilboys.
I have recently bought some accessory items from Gilboy's and to say the service is exceptional would be a vast understatement. Again, there was a handwritten card and thanking me for another order, (this is unheard of with other companies) and it is handwritten and not just printed, and moth sweet pea seeds to propagate. I cannot say how customer focused Gilboy's are and go that extra mile as part of their ethos. The items themselves are good value (wire wool and buffing cloths) and great products and each item is individually packed, again not seen anymore apart from here. Thank you ever so much for you attention to detail and great products, I will be buying more from Gilboy's as and when needed. Oh, and Simon Gilboy's is very generous with his knowledge too.
The Gilboys wax kits are excellent and have given my battered old kitchen table a completely new lease of life. Products beautifully presented and very efficient service. Highly recommend.
Lovely products, packaged with great love and attention. Will definitely order from Gilboys again
This wax is fantastic stuff and smells wonderful. Gilboy’s have attention to detail which is second to none, fantastic customer service, the type I have not seen in a long,long time. I will definitely be buying more, a little more costly than my normal wax I buy, but well worth it.
Extremely happy with the efficient service and help explaining what I needed for my Ercol furniture and solid Oak kitchen furniture. Nothing was too much trouble and I can ring at any time if I have difficulty, which is rare in this day and age. Can't praise them enough, and I know the beeswax polish will work wonderfully.
Unfortunately I haven't had a chance to use the products yet, but I have to say how please I am with the fast service, the excellent presentation, and the help that Simon and his team have given me. Thank you.
So nice to use a wax that works brilliantly and doesn’t give me a headache . As a furniture restorer I have used lots of different types of wax but I shall be switching to Gilboy’s after using this trial pack . The all natural ingredients work really well, smell really nice and are easy to use . Very impressed .
I found this product on the internet. It was ordered and delivered quickly and I am very pleased with how it has brought a shine to an antique table which gets a lot of sun.
This is high quality old school polish, the more elbow grease you put in the better finish you'll get out. Not cheap but quality costs a bit more and it is definitely worth it in this case
So lovely to receive a product that is so personalised. Absolutely brilliant, I used the polish with 00000 grade wire wool and can see the honey colour coming back. Will definitely recommend.
I’ve used a few, both sides of the pond...this is far and away the best “wire wool” ever. Got some extra as a gift for a friend restoring metals, too.
Excellent polish, brings the furniture up looking great.
Brilliant product, worked really well on mahogany chairs bought in auction, that hadn’t been polished for years. Clear and easy instructions for use, smells wonderful and came beautifully packaged. Well worth the money and would make a lovely present for anyone with antique furniture. I shall definitely buy again
It transpired that the polish couldn't actually achieve the re-colouring of wood that I was looking for, but Simon took the trouble to look at my problem and advise a good alternative route.
If you have a treasured piece of furniture, you owe it the best. The packaging and presentation, with personal touches is the first indication that you've bought something special. The natural ingredients make the polish smell great, and to see such a great shine when you're done is really rewarding. The video tutorial was also great for tips on how to get the best result. I cannot recommend it enough.
Easy to buy, Easy to use...Before you open the box you just know it’s a quality product... and the experience gets better as the wax goes on!
Received my polishing kit a few days ago, followed the instructions and polished a Georgian chest of drawers. The result was stunning, the chest went from being dull and lack lustre to having a lovely deep shine. Very impressed with the product, the instructions and the result. Will definately buy again.
A real quality product, great packaging and instructions. I thought that the personal note was a lovely touch as were the Sweet Pea seeds!
Couldn't wait for my box of goodies to arrive and wasn't disappointed! Lovely gift set which I plan to reorder for a family member. Absolutely unbelievable results occurred after using the wax on my oak table. Saw gold strands in the wood shine through for the first time! Have almost used up one of the tins - just wanted to go from one item of furniture to the next to see what beauty lay hidden beneath. Would definitely recommend both the product and the company. They deserve to do well. Order from them and you won't be disappointed.
Very pleased with the results. The wood grain was brought out very well even on items that were quite old and there is a noticeable but not overprominent sheen to the wood.
I collect antique and replica's of American Banjo, shelf and girandole clocks. I watched several of Simon's video's and applied your rose gold product to an older girandol clock that I was thinking of having professionally restored. After the first application the clock looked "brand new" and exhibited a life with the beauty of the crotch mahogany shining with a warm glow like never before. I applied another application after about 1 month and the clock is like new. I cant say enough about your products and i will be buying more over the coming months. My next project will be polishing several rose wood and mahogany grandfather and mantle clocks I own. Truth be told polishing is very relaxing and I intend to learn more about French polishing next.
This not just premium wax - it is super premium wax. Not cheap but worth every pence if you really care about what you are waxing. What amazes me is the wood surface you have waxed stays polished for a very long time. These guys at Gilboys are really good nice people - who also care about the bees who made the beeswax base. Great gift as packaging posh and includes seeds for sweet peas as a bit of a pay back to those hard-working bees. Not gold plated but solid gold! David from London
I purchased the antique beeswax for use on my floor standing speakers which were already finished in Walnut to a high standard. The wax really bought out the grain of the wood and added a deep shine finish to them.
I purchased two of the polishing clothes with the wax, one to apply and one to 'buff' with. They did a wonderful job and will last for years, thanks.
I bought the polish to try and repair a table, badly sun bleached. I'm afraid it didn't work, not because of the polish, but the table was just a "cheap" veneer and not the real oak I thought it was. However, the polish made the table look so much better, as the polished sheen it added, looked wonderful. I have "wood" that will be having a little treatment and I know it will also look wonderful.
Oh! yes and the presentation of the polish made it look so expensive AND some seeds too? with a little note. Perfect Customer service.
Great product, fair price and loved the packaging
