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
Purchased the twin-pack polishing kit recently, lovely packaging with a personalised note and instructions, great products, both the beeswax polish and beeswax blocks have been used successfully with the wire-wool and polishing cloths, producing fabulous results. Now looking for new projects to use them again!
Really did a great job on two bits of furniture that had'nt had much TLC for many years!
Thank you too for the sweetpeas!
Excellent quality polish with clear instructions on how to use. Beautifully packaged and efficient delivery. Very pleased with the purchase.
Excellent products from a small team of well-trained experts based in Devon. This British company seems to have an excellent ethos with attention to detail, quality and the environment. Our first order, the Beeswax Polishing Starter Kit, arrived in environmentally-friendly packaging, beautifully presented with care, a handwritten card, some bee-friendly flower seeds and expert tips. The attention to detail and the care taken shows the class and quality of Gilboy's. We've tried the antique gold polish on some oak furniture and the shine is the best ever. We will be buying from Gilboy's from now on, and can't praise them highly enough. Strongly believe small, British companies like this should be supported. First-class.
My old dads (cabinetmaker) advice, “small amount of polish, large amount of elbow grease” worked beautifully with this product. Best wax by far and I’ve used a few. Will definitely buy more in future.
From phoning Gilboy’s to ask a few questions, to ordering and receiving the ‘polish like a pro’ and ‘scratch repair‘ kits, the service I received has been excellent, I would have no hesitation in recommending Gilboy’s products and company. From the personalised hand written card, the way the products are packed and the sweet pea seeds shows just how much this company cares about their products and customers.
I have only tried the pure gold polish on an item of pine furniture that has been long overdue some TLC. WOW! the unit looks amazing. The idea of using wire wool is scary, but watching the video guides that Simon made helped, they really are a great source of information and I would recommend taking the time to watch them.
We recently bought an Art Nouveau cherry wood Semainier and I am looking forward to using your rose gold polish on it, once I feel more confident in using wire wool on wood, so more practice polishing for me!
The one thing that’s not been said is just how great the polish smells, there is something magical and uplifting about the smell of beeswax.
Would make a great gift, Beautifully presented. Works very well . Only negative they forgot to pack the elbow grease!
I was thoroughly delighted with the service and speedy delivery of premier beeswax furniture polish. The hand written card included with the order was a nice personal touch instead of a printed piece of paper. Shows you care about your customers. I will definitely be using your company again should I ever need more goods. I looked a lot on the internet for outlets for Beeswax and your company came across as the best supplier with plenty of information about the product. Keep up the good work!!
Great speedy service. Top quality product
This is the second time I have purchased Beeswax from Gilboy's. Its a great product and does what it says, polishes up antique furniture wonderfully and brings out the colour beautifully. the little touch of seeds to give something back to the Bees is lovely touch.
The box is so lovely, with a little note for me too. But not just a pretty box but the wax and the cloth and everything is so lovely. Love this.
As someone who has been restoring and French polishing antiques and antique joinery for well over 30 years, I am absolutely impressed by the high quality of Gilboys polishes. Simon and his team are consummate professionals in this area and are dedicated to producing the very best products for the antique restoration market.
Not only this, but their helpful videos and personalised service is first class. The quality of the packaging of products, the personal note included and even inclusion of sweet pea seeds was such a welcoming touch never experienced before.
I collect Australian colonial cedar furniture and live in a colonial home. Gilboys Antique Gold wax polish is without doubt the very best polish I have used on my cedar furniture and joinery. I am equally certain that the Pure Gold wax polish again would be perfect for all my Baltic, Huon and Kauri pine furniture and joinery and intend purchasing this product in the very near future.
Many thanks Simon
