Complete Polishing Kit, amazing finishes every time

Truly amazing wax polishes. Every piece that I have restored using the complete polishing kit, has produced fantastic finishes every time and made my life much easier through knowing that I am using quality products made and used by professional restorers. As a young restorer using professional restorers products, I can truly say that these are amazing finishes which have helped me hugely. Thank you

Fabulous coverage

Purchased the kit with the three different shades and covered an old pine kitchen table using the antique gold first then the pure old over the top between buffing up. It has given the rather worn looking table a new lease of life and very impressed with the shine.

Lovely product & personal touch

I haven’t used it yet, but it looks great and I love the personal touch of the sweet pea seeds and the hand written card. Thank you very much, what great customer care you have!


Quite simply the best wax product I've ever used, my 15 year old table now looks better than when I bought it. Amazing results, easy to apply and such care taken with the packaging.

Amazing product!

This is my 3rd purchase from the guys. This one was to wax and polish a very tired Victorian dressing table I bought at auction. Easy to use and gives a beautiful finish! In these days of online purchasing with poor customer service it is a joy to receive a great product, beautifully packaged with easy instructions and tips to get the best out of the product, plus the invitation to get advice from the experts if needed. And you get some free seeds for the garden. Love that you can return the jar for a refill with a substantial reduction for all us recyclers! Brilliant! Cannot recommend highly enough!

Fantastic product..!

Having ordered and received my starter kit several weeks ago I’ve finally got round to using it. I’d spent a few weekends stripping back and repairing an antique ladies chair in mahogany. Now for the waxing... I decided on the Rose Gold... what a joy, both in usage and the result. It’s brought the chair back to life. Thank you Gilboy’s..!


Ordered my antique gold polishing kit... it arrived early and is just incredible. Beautifully packed, I love the little touches that have been added. The polish is the best I’ve ever used. I will definitely be using again and again! Thank you so much!

Gilboys starter kit

What a fantastic product, so easy to use and does a lovely job. I recently revamped a piece of light oak furniture because it had a water mark on the top and was impossible for me to remove. I stained it a darker colour but then it looked dull. Once I applied the antique gold it transformed it into a high end looking piece. I’m so pleased!

Just great

Could not have had a more friendly or helpful person who dealt with my order from start to delivery

Chest of Drawers

A polished result and the item back to prime condition. Your instructions were
first class. A premium product producing the goods.

Yep, worth every penny.

A virtuoso of waxes

Everyone who takes a pride in caring for their furniture/wood products should be using Gilboys waxes. As a full time French Polisher for Bovey Castle and occasionally at other high end establishments, I can honestly say that Gilboys waxes are by far the most superior I have ever had the pleasure of using. Without a shadow of doubt, we will be purchasing the larger sizes from now on. Having been in the trade for (a very) many years I am so glad to have discovered you. Even opening the box was a joy to behold. I sincerely thank you for your exceptional genius.

Wonder Wax

Very professional packaging and love the two little bundles of wire wool and cloth, although more than enough for the wooden rings im making the cloth does fall apart quite easily, ive only used it once and to be fair it might have been the way i cut it. The wax sent me back to days of old with boot polish and sweet pine, very thick set, only need a little bit and tye sheen is lovely with no after smells which i was sort of expecting. I am now very excited to work with these waxes on other projects. Thank you guys for the handwritten note inside the box a really lovely touch of professional customer service, amazing, so glad i found you guys.

Using Gilboy's Pure Gold in my boat

Excellent results so far on the veneered marine ply in my boat - but need to be careful with not doing too much at once - confined space - turpentine fumes and all that.....

Excellent product .. but ..

Just bought a late victorian mahogany display cabinet which is in generally good order but I thought it might benefit from some Gilboys tlc. I tried antique gold on some out of the way areas first and discovered that some parts of the surface colour were being removed. I think this is because parts of the cabinet were stained (presumably the bits that used cheaper wood) and the polish just removed the surface stain. The solid mahogany bits came up a treat and I was very pleased with the result. I had watched several of your Youtube videos but don't remember seeing a bit that says the polish removed wood stain.

Good quality product!

Gilboy's beeswax is easy to apply, leaving a great finish, on our oak dresser, I would definitely recommend this product.

Best Polish; Best Service!

My initial order arrived damaged; no problem - - Mr. Gilboy could not have been more helpful in making things right! Great polish!

polishing starter kit

This is the second purchase I have made from Gilboys and once again I am impressed with the product. It is also good that one can buy the three polishes in a smaller quantity and all I need to do is to select my next project to use the polish.

Polishing kit

Gorgeous Packaging

A wonderful surprise to receive a package that looks like a present! Truly beautifully presented and arranged. I have not used the product yet but have no doubt it will become a favourite.

Very happy!

Very pleased...a little polish goes a long way, buffs up to an amazing shine and has added a nice depth to an extremely weary looking 1850 washstand.

Give your furniture a new lease of life

Lovely smelling beeswax polish, easy to use and such an improvement in my pine table after dreaded silicone sprays. Strongly recommended for furniture you care about.
