I’d like your thoughts and suggestions.
I’ve just completed 5 cedar and 3 oak sliding lid, finger joint boxes as Christmas gifts for the grandkids.
My dilemma is whether to leave them unfinished or not. They are sanded to a very smooth surface and I like the aromatic cedar. But knowing the kids (aged 5 to 16) will be handling them for many years to come, maybe a protective finish of some kind is in order.
Tell me what you might do and what you might use as a finish.
Thanks for the input! Larry
