BRINGS OLD FURNITURE BACK TO LIFE
PRESERVES THE FINISH OF ANTIQUE WOOD
REVIVES AND PROTECTS FADED AND SUN-DAMAGED FURNITURE*

Simply the best beeswax polish for any type of wood. 

Gilboy's beeswax polish is made from triple filtered beeswax sourced direct from the monks at Buckfast Abbey in South Devon.

  • Made in the UK from the highest quality natural waxes to bring out the shine and protect your furniture 
  • 100% natural ingredients
    • The best Dartmoor beeswax
    • The finest carnauba wax
    • Myrica wax from the Andes (read more)
    • Pure pine turpentine
    • No white spirit or petrochemical solvents

Our beeswax furniture polish provides the best protection for the finish of all woods. It is very easy to apply and a little polish goes a very long way. 

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.  

COLOUR MATCHING

Pure Gold is a clear beeswax polish ideal for use on Ash, Beech, Maple, Light Oak and PineTo restore the colour of sun-bleached woods we recommend using Rose Gold or Antique Gold* (see note below)

Rose Gold is a medium shade beeswax polish specially formulated for use on Rosewood, Light Mahogany, Cherry, and Honey Oak furniture or similar coloured woods. 

Antique Gold is a dark beeswax polish designed for use on dark and antique woods such as Antique Oak, Mahogany, Walnut, Elm or similar dark coloured woods.

 

*SUN-BLEACHING RESTORATION NOTE

The restoration of sun-bleached areas can be achieved with our Rose Gold or Antique Gold polish when it is applied to a surface where the protective finish is dry or in a deteriorated state.  Where the finish is in good order and sealing the surface, the dyes in our polishes will be prevented from being absorbed by the sun bleached area and it will have no effect. We would therefore recommend taking your furniture to a professional restorer who will remove the finish, revive the colour of the wood and then restore the finish once more. You might recommend our professional range of 1L tins of beeswax polishes while you're there!

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.....

Great Product, Great Company

I'm now on my second purchase of Pure Gold after purchasing some to finish an antique oak table and chairs I was restoring. The table and chairs were very rustic pieces and I was hoping Gilboys would provide a natural looking, buttery finish more suited to their character than the high gloss look of varnish. After a lot of polishing and buffing I ended up with exactly the look I was hoping for. I really think this product is amazing. I also have to give a shout-out to Gilboys staff who gave me a ton of helpful advice pre-purchase. They shipped very promptly and sent everything well packaged for the trip to Canada.

Amazing Quality!

Bought the three jar set for a friend who loves restoring wooden furniture. They lived it so much that I ordered this as they've run out of the pure gold wax.

And the sweet peas from last time are growing too!

Thank you!

Excellent product

Easy to apply and gives a lovely finish. That said the turpentine smell gave me a headache after an hour so had to apply outdoors in the end. The table was sanded back 80/120/180 and epoxy / wax filled where necessary and then Gilboy's Pure Gold applied.

Excellent personal service from Gilboy's - would definitely order again.

Gilboy beeswax is an excellent product

I purchased this product directly from the Gilboy website. As soon as I received the package, I realized the extraordinary quality of the service. The Gilboy company works very seriously and takes care of its customers. I'm glad I made this purchase. I have already started using bees on a series of antique family furniture. The effect on wood after applying Gilboy wax is astonishing. Words are not enough to thank this company. Soon I will make new orders. Adriano Ferrari

Gilboys polish is simply the best.

I have collected antique furniture since my childhood as a member of my family was an antiques dealer, and it formed part of my early life. Over the years I have used a number of pure beeswax polishes for maintaining my large collection of furniture. In 2017 I discovered Gilboys polish, and I bought a small amount to test it on a piece of Rosewood furniture that needed to be revived. It immediately left the furniture with a deep natural shine that enhanced the patina of the wood. I have also used Gilboys polish on my large collection of antique bronzes as well, as it also enhances the patina that bronzes develop over time. I have recently purchased a litre tin of the polish which represents very good value for money for such a high quality product.
It is simply the best polish I know, and I have recommended it to my friends many of whom are antiques dealers.

Dear Grenville. Thank you for taking your time to write such a complimentary review. As you are aware we have continued to improve the polish. We are working very closely with Buckfast Abbey where will be demonstrating the polish in the grounds this summer 2018. We also hope to be involved in some way with the BBC Antiques Roadshow that will also be at the Abbey this September. We continue to receive almost daily 5 star reviews for the polish which we hope will help the wider community see what we have developed. Thank you once again Mr Johnson. Your comments and enthusiasm is very much appreciated by all of us here at Gilboy's.

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.
