I have a good oak toilet seat with a broken hinge. I have decided to just
replace the hinge, which is about 1/4 cost of a new seat.
I guess I'll refinish it, too with a good sanding and stain. What's a good
finish for a toilet seat, especially for a home with 2 boys in diapers who
soon be learning the art of aiming...
Is satin poly ok? Is it non-toxic to the skin once it dries?

Poly, either satin or gloss is about the only finish I would recommend
for a toilet seat. Nothing else will handle the environment
gracefully. I think a lot of the commercial finishes are some sort of
lacquer, but they always seem to peel after a year or so.
I'd suggest full-gloss, rather than satin. Simply because it is _harder_,
and more durable. the lower-lustre finishes are made by adding wax to the
gloss finish; which also makes them physically softer.
