I am refurbishing a high chair. What I need is recommendations for a
finish. I need something safe if the baby is teething and bits on the
wood. I don't want to use paint of any kind. What do you suggest?
A high chair needs to have a finish that can stand up to repeated
washings and disinfectants. Waterlox is tough as nails, thin enough
to wipe on, and like Leon said, safe after drying.
"Never kick a pulling mule."
Yes, it has been proven that "nearly" all film finishes are non-toxic
when fully cured. However, if you want to be very safe you can use
this product from General Finishes
The manufacturer makes a specific claim of food safety and non
toxicity. It is an easy wipe on type finish and very durable. I used
it on some Sushi boards (Gita), the little wood platters with the cool
sliding dovetail legs and it has held up well in a commercial
environment where they get washed all the time. It seems about as
tough as poly. I had some drips and had a bitch sanding them out.
