Finishes on Your Toy Making Projects:
When it comes to finishes for building toy projects, there are a few things to keep in mind.
First and foremost, you want to choose a finish that is non-toxic. This is especially important if the toys will be used by children.
Second, you need to consider the type of wood you are using. Some woods are more porous than others and will require a different type of finish.
For example, you might use an oil-based finish on a porous wood like cedar, but you would use a water-based finish on a non-porous wood like maple. By the way, we don't recommend using cedar to make toys. Woods like poplar, birch, oak and cherry on very good.
Finally, you need to decide what level of protection you need. A simple clear coat will help to protect the wood from everyday wear and tear, but if you want something more durable, you might choose a tougher finish like polyurethane. Whatever type of finish you choose, make sure it is something that will protect your toys and your children for years to come.
