Tried and True is not a particularly protective coating but there are several kinds and you are not specific in which one to use. I use the varnish oil formula and it is a moderately protective product with multiple coats. It is probably adequate for the bookcase. The chair is a different story however. I’d look toward a polyurethane or varnish product for that use. The General products are good ones but there are many others out there. Once most of these finishes have dried they are essentially non-toxic so that should not be a major concern.
