Default Re: child safe finishes?

Hi,

I'm with Poto on this. Mineral Oil if you don't want to take chances.

Ask Liberon if their Tung Oil is food safe. They should say yes. There are rare occurrences of "anaphylaxis" with Tung Oil, but I think you sorta have to drink the entire can to induce it. I use Tung Oil hard burnished on pretty much all my work and use it on my own work benches and tables, chopping boards and stuff and I'm still OK (cough! hack!) It works fine!

Regards,

Rob
