Product Details Company Info More from this company

CTP Timber Reviver was originally developed some years ago, at the request of a builder who was working for English Heritage. It is a concentrated solution of Beeswax in Turpentine, designed to feed, enhance and protect old Beams and other architectural timbers.

Unlike other preparations that have been used for this purpose that tend to sit on the surface, Timber Reviver actually soaks into the wood, stabilising  and protecting, restoring tired, dried out  old beams to their former glory.

As with the polish we produce, Turpentine is a natural treatment to use on wood, as it comes from wood (Turps is distilled pine sap).

Timber reviver offers the same kind of benefits as our furniture polish, but in a form that can easily be applied by brush, as old beams and timbers usually have a rough or riven surface.

Cambridge Traditional Products Ltd was established in 1979, to manufacture Traditional Beeswax furniture Polish. Retired teacher and beekeeper Adrian Perkins discovered an original Victorian recipe, and soon realised he had something special. A truly traditional beeswax polish imparts a unique silky shine that you don’t get with modern polishes, and one that improves over time with subsequent applications.

Our polish is a cream emulsion, and we have stuck faithfully to the original ingredients, including the finest quality beeswax and genuine pure gum turpentine.

We produce our polish in two versions; the original ‘neutral’, perfect for any wood; and a brown version which is great as a subtle stain, or to enhance the grain, especially on dark woods such as mahogany or walnut.

Some years ago, after receiving a request from a builder working for English Heritage, we developed CTP Timber Reviver. Timber Reviver is a natural solution of Beeswax and Turpentine for the renovation and protection of old timber beams. Timber reviver naturally feeds and enhances wood like the polish, but comes in a form that can be easily applied by brush, making it ideal for the rough, textured surfaces usually found on old architectural timbers.

Although developed specifically for old beams, Timber reviver is ideal for any wood where application of polish with a cloth is impractical.

We also produce and supply pure beeswax, in 1oz sticks or larger blocks as required.
