Cabinet Makers Wax

  • $31.00
Shipping calculated at checkout.

A firm building wax, designed to develop a protective layer on timber. Excellent for filling imperfections such as hairline cracks or tiny holes. Cabinet Maker's Wax is marvellous on oak, jarrah and other woods that have no specific finish. Used over the Restoring Polish, Cabinet Maker's Wax produces a natural finish. Traditionally applied with OOOO steel wool to drive the firm wax into any gaps. Step 2 in our 3 Step Waxing Process.

Use For


Surface Preparation

Prepare the raw timber using either our Orange Oil, Liquid Beeswax or Restoring and New Timber Polish.

How to Apply

  1. Dip 0000 steel wool into tin and remove a small amount of wax. Rub into the timber with pressure in line with the grain. 
  2. Buff back with a soft, lint-free cloth or buffing pads. Can be applied without the steel wool.
  3.  Use up to three coats, buffing well between coats. Allow up to four hours between coats.

Dry Time

Overnight for best results


Depending on wear (as the surface becomes dull or dry). These natural wax finishes do breathe, so we recommend use of coasters and mats where applicable.

Clean Up

Warm, soapy water for hands or cloth. Excess wax on timber; dampen a cloth with d-Limonene or mineral turpentine.

Tassie Oak Rodrack

Gilly’s Clear Cabinet Makers Wax, enough said. Best in class, dream finish on a recently completed Tasmanian Oak project. Absolute quality. The ease of use, the smell & the finish. A must have for the timber purists & enthusiasts.

Great Wax

Enhanced the grain without bringing out the deep red Jarrah typically displays. Perfect for all projects.

Jump in - it's terrific

I am a beginner renovator and the cabinet wax filled in large gaps in my 100-year-old floorboards. I apply it with my hand & remove excess with Chux (because I use too much & make alot of mess, as a learner).
I follow Gilly's 3 step treatment (orange oil, cabinet wax, lavendar wax) & visitors say my floorboards have a home-like smell & look beautiful. I am hooked on Gilly's.

Used the black cabinet makers wax over a pre oiling of orange oil. The finish is first class. Best finish yet! I have moved on from Danish oil, French polishing and other brands of oil waxes.
