I have used mineral oil as a finish for children’s toys. The oil does not go rancid and it protects the piece some from moisture from teething children.

The kids will enjoy making noise with this. Nice work.

Sorry I didn’t see your comment on my project until today.
Glad Karson could help you out.
Looks good, the kids should love them.

Ohhhh, you’re gonna rue the day you made this thang if you made it for one of yours. For a customer, fine, but if it’s for one of your grandkids, make sure Mommy takes it home with her. After having five daughters and them getting at LEAST one of these infernal things and them providing us with 14 grandkids and 17 greats, I soon made a rule: if you get it or bring it, take it home with you.
Good looking thing, even though I hate ‘em. ;o)Good job. Thanks for the post andHave a good’unJoe
