This is a teether i made for my son. it is made from maple, then wet sanded to 600 grit. once sanded i burnished it with craft paper to get it silky smooth. it feels like a polished jewel. the wet sanding takes away any risk of raising grain when he chews on it and the wood is safe and organic. There is quite a movement going on right now in the baby world with parents going back to old style natural (wood) toys, figured id give it a try. my sons seems to like it

I am going to give making some of these wooden chew toys a try as requested by my wife’s cousin. Thanks for explaining your sanding process.

Is there a particular reason behind the shaping? I like the old school approach.

It’s great to see wooden things for kids becoming popular again. Plastic has reigned long enough !
