5 star review on Amazon
Gilboy's Antique Gold polish outshines all the rest.
"I have used traditional Beeswax on my antique furniture for over forty years, but Gilboy's antique Gold Polish is outstanding, and out performs all the rest. Not only does the polish impart a deep lustrous shine to the wood, but it totally enhances the natural patina of the furniture, and it has a very pleasant perfume. The packaging is excellent, and the team who make it go out of their way to personalise every order. I am now converted to using this high standard and high class product."
(Grenville Johnson, Amazon reviewer 19-2-17)

 

We have developed our beeswax furniture polish to such a fine blend that you don't necessarily have to polish again for at least a year and possibly up to three years.

Edwardian Roll Top Desk.

I am restoring an Edwardian Roll Top Desk, and I am using this wax as it is badly sun bleached and careworn. The results I have got from this wax are outstanding. I have needed advice along the way and I have contacted Gilboys via email and telephone, and they have been most helpful and encouraging. I would recommend this product and the Gilboys shop to everyone.

Hi Philip. Thank you for your kind review. I am happy to hear that your Edwardian desk restoration was a success. A roll top desk will take a bit of dedication but the results are worth it. We are always here to help. Between us we have over 50 years of experience in furniture restoration and polishing and we are more than happy to share our combined knowledge. Thank you. Kind regards. Simon.

Vintage Stereo Console's and Barzilay Console's

First I an impressed with this 5Star Company, with the special notes, packaging, and most of all the quality of the people, and the product is excellent in every way. My wood loves this product and I will continue to purchase products from this company. May I say Thank You to all of the employees, and God Bless.

Dear Mark. Thank you so much for your very kind review. It is really nice to find out what our customers are using Gilboys Gold on. Until now we didn't know what a Barzilay console was, now I know! I can see how good it would work on this type of furniture. The finish from this period of time will potentially be breaking down and drying out and the surface will need nourishing. Thank you for your very enlightening review. Kind Regards. Simon

It Works!

I put this polish on my large ornate dark oak furniture using a duster and small toothbrush. Waited a couple of days. Could not believe the instant shine that came appeared when I buffed it up. This really is the best polish I have ever used. Over the moon ! Will be back for more !

Dear Maureen. Thank you for your very kind review, we really appreciate your kind comments. *Using a toothbrush or a 25mm trimmed paintbrush is a great way to apply wax polish to detailed carved relief areas.* Kind Regards Simon Gilboy

Gilboy's Antique Gold polish outshines all the rest.

Having visited Gilboys showrooms last summer and listened to the craftsmen there speaking so passionately about making this wax, I decided to try it. Since receiving it, I have waxed a number of inherited antiques and it has polished them brilliantly. I will definitely buy this wax again and would recommend it to anyone who has antiques in need of a decent polish.

HOW TO APPLY BEESWAX POLISH IN 3 EASY STEPS:

  1. Use a soft cloth or very fine ‘0000’ wire wool - (it’s like cotton wool to the touch) 
  2. With gentle pressure spread the polish evenly over the surface in the direction of the grain, being careful not to over apply and avoid any upholstered areas. Once applied the surface area should look matt in appearance 
  3. Having allowed a few hours or overnight for the pure pine turpentine to slowly evaporate and the polish to harden, use a soft cloth to buff the wax to a deep and lustrous shine. 

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.

Every jar of Gilboy's Gold beeswax furniture polish is accompanied with a small box of sweet-pea seeds for you to plant and grow to provide more nectar for the amazing honey bees.

Hold on to our special reusable packaging and use it again to return your empty jar for a 25% discounted refill.

*Gilboy’s Secret Trade Tip: 

For carved relief areas such as an antique coffer, you can also apply beeswax furniture polish with a standard shoe polish 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 the next day with the soft shoe brush.
