I have just finished a bread box for my son
It is made from pine and finished with minwax stain and a water based
Problem is smell from pine or finish seems to enter breads put in box What
should I use for finish ???
I'd use a little time. Give it about a month or so in a well ventilated
area (outside?) and let the pine and finish off-gas.
I'm not 100% sure this will work, but if all it costs is time...
Wise is the man who attempts to answer his question before asking it.

Keep the bread in a plastic bag until the smell goes away... Or enjoy the smell,
assuming it's pine and not the verathane..
Plastic coated pine just doesn't smell as good as pine, ya know?

've used coffee grounds to reduce/mask smells like that. I put them
in a refrigerator thatwas going to be closed for a several months, and
it was ok when opened. You could make some little sachets of grounds
(fresh ones, not used) stapled into a coffee filter and leave them in
the closed box.
One of the tragedies of my growing up was discovering that coffee
never tasted as good as it smelled.
