I am amazed that someone so young could create such a nice spoon using only their teeth! Not only a cute baby, but talented as well!

I would be cautious about letting the baby suck on it since it’s finished in Linseed oil. Very nice carving :)

“All finishes are safe to eat of of or be chewed on once the finish has fully cured.” And P.S. beautiful spoon and beautiful baby. Let her chew.

Try walnut oil. Found in the salad oil section of thegrocery store. Non-toxic, doesn’t get rancid and does not change the color of the wood substantially. I use it on multi species cutting boards and kitchen utensils in basswood, cherry, birch, walnut and butternut. I like BLO with beeswax, carnuba and turps—polish for furniture and trinkets. Lovely child and work.

Again, all wood finishes are safe once fully cured. Walnut oil may be OK if it gives the effect you want for a specific project but it cures slowly, never very hard and is therefore only marginally effective as a finish. Those properties make it quite unsuitable for many things.

Have your say...
