Traditional Beeswax Polish

The ever-popular Traditional Beeswax has its own unique way of reviving a piece, that is a long-time rock of furniture’s welfare and will never be far from the favourites in Restorers’ range.

You can apply any of the Restorers Furniture Wax directly to raw (New or unsealed) timber if needed, though in the case of most restoration and furniture revivals, (Blog and video here) there may be a base upon which to apply this finish.


Unlike some brands, we’ve removed all water content from any polishes in this range, which means you get more wax content and more coverage from each tin. We’ve also harnessed the benefits of complimenting waxes in order to produce the best sheen & durability, plus made it easier to apply and quicker to dry.


Applied with fine (0000) steel wool and buffed with an inexpensive piece of cotton polishing cloth. No need to go foraging for lint-free cloths or more expensive cotton polishing cloths!



IN THE POPULARITY STAKES

Restorers Premium Furniture Waxes (Antique and Clear) are now equal in popularity to our Traditional Beeswax, since their release in 2023). Possibly due to the medley of waxes combined for the durability & shine, or maybe it just smells damn gorgeous around the house! (Don't forget to checkout our 'Mancave' reed diffusers', if you crave for the real aroma of the shed when you can't be in it - and they make great gifts!)



Our everyday go-to Restorers Furniture waxes are the Premium ‘Clear Finish’ and ‘Antique. Both infused with Carnauba wax and Microcrystalline wax, these two finishes are a premium quality salvation to furniture, in a combination of traditional and modern finishes (but only waxes, and defo no poly-anythings!)


Application is as uncomplicated as; 0000 steel wool to apply, wait 20-30 minutes, and a piece of polishing cloth to buff up a guaranteed shine. Details and a bucket load of info for the use of each product, are on our site. And the easiest way to get there, is to scan the QR code on your tin.



Restorers Premium Clear Furniture Wax

On new or previously unsealed timber, Clear Finish will see no change in the colour to the timber and serve to emphasise & protect the grain in the way only wax can, imparting a deep rich sheen.

Restorers Premium Antique Furniture Wax

The darker Antique wax doesn’t mean a compromise to the level of finish. It will add a light/golden hue to light woods and a similar in-fill to slight grain undulations in darker wood.


Applied to Antique patina, redwoods or dark woods, Restorers Antique will add depth, protection, and a striking sheen to the piece.






Restorers Premium Antique Furniture Wax

Despite its appearance in the tin, (something similar to a failed cake-mix) Antique is not designed to tint furniture or timber unnecessarily, but it will darken open grain or porous areas, so always test first on a waste piece or out of sight area.


To that end of course, the antique hue will aid in covering light scratches as you polish.

(Incidentally, the cake mix look will vanish as you 'charge' your 0000 steel wool or cotton cloth for the first time)




PREMIUM CARNAUBA WAX

Restorers Premium Carnauba Wax Polish

We’ve replaced the softer cream-polish version.


The Restorers Premium Wax Carnauba Polish is higher in Carnauba and enhanced by the presence of Beeswax and Microcrystalline wax. This combination yields not only a durable finish but also imparts the high sheen synonymous with Carnauba. Typically, Carnauba must be reduced from its natural brittle form, so that it can be worked & applied. This often means a water solution and high volumes of solvents are added; however, we’ve kept it firm and infused our Carnauba with complimenting waxes and natural gum turpentine, such that it can be applied like any softer wax polishes.



COULD THIS BE THE 'FINAL FRONTIER' (Star trek fans!)


CARNAUBA CRYSTAL WAX POLISH

Taking the durable & high sheen of Carnauba to another level – Crystal Wax can be applied to furniture and any piece, and it's also ideal for turned, carved, or ornamental pieces. At almost 60% Carnauba content, this hard wax produces a glass-like sheen with unparalleled durability. Similar to the rest of the Restorers range, the steel wool and cotton cloth regime works perfectly. Lathe enthusiasts can take advantage of the machine buffed finish that Crystal delivers, direct to a raw sanded base, oiled, sealed, or a friction treated piece, for incredible results.
