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.
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!
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.
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
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.
Have now used all 3 Bees wax polishes and they are superb coupled with the block wax used for filling holes and scratches....wonderful!
