Everything you need to start polishing your furniture like a professional with the best beeswax polish:

  • 80ml tin of 'pure gold', for use on light coloured woods such as Ash, Beech, Maple, Light Oak and Pine
  • 80ml tin of 'rose gold', for use on rose coloured woods such as Rosewood, Light Mahogany, Cherry and Honey Oak
  • 80ml tin 'antique gold', for use on dark coloured woods such as Antique Oak, Mahogany, Walnut, and Elm
  • 60cm of our antique restorers' recommended '0000' grade oil-free wire wool
  • 1 large length (70cm) of our antique restorers' recommended polishing cloth
  • 1 box of complimentary sweet pea seeds for you to plant and grow as a special 'Thank You' to the hard-working bees

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* such as dining table, gate-leg table, bureau, chest of drawers, or four to six dining chairs.
*depending on the absorption rate of the wood.

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 and is specially formulated to bring old furniture back to life:

  • 100% natural ingredients
  • The best local Dartmoor beeswax
  • The finest carnauba wax for longer lasting protection
  • Myrica wax from the Andes for improved resistance to UV and sun-bleaching
  • Pure pine turpentine
  • No white spirit, toluene or petrochemical solvents
  • Pure gold has no staining agents
  • Recyclable packaging made from recycled cardboard

Great polish

The starter kit arrived very quickly and was beautifully presented. I've only used the pure gold one so far; it is easy to apply using the supplied buffing cloth and buffs up great. There was a lovely personal 'thank you' note in the box - a nice touch. Really pleased with the product.

Amazing

We were so pleased with our kit from Gilboy’s. Delivery was excellent,came within 2 days of ordering. After watching a YouTube video it was easy to apply and the results are stunning. As well as a lovely smell in the house the furniture looks like new. Would highly recommend

Looking good

I have barely started using the kit, but the one table top that I have had the time to polish so far is looking much better, and the application process was starightforward. I look forward to tackling other pieces of furniture soon.

HOW TO POLISH WITH BEESWAX

  1. Use a soft cloth or very fine 0000 wire wool
  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. Allow the pure pine turpentine to completely evaporate and the wax to harden
  4. Use a soft buffing 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.

*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.

Your purchase 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.
