THE WELL KNOWN FINISHER AND AUTHOR BOB FLEXNER ALSO SAYS THAT ONCE POLYURETHENE, OR VARNISH HAS DRIED, THERE IS NO DANGER OF TOXICITY. THERE IS A WARNING ON MOST FINISHES THAT THEY ARE TOXIC OUT OF THE CAN. HOWEVER, ONCE DRIED, THERE IS NO DANGER. I WOULD THINK THAT OTHER THAN MINERAL OIL, SHELLAC WOULD BE THE IDEAL FINISH, SINCE IT COMES FROM THE LAC BUG, AND ALCOHOL, THERE SHOULD BE NO DANGER ONCE DRY NOR SHOULD THERE BE ANY ODOR OR FLAVOR IMPARTED TO THE CONTENTS OF THE CONTAINER, WITH THE THREAT OF LEACHING FROM PLASTICS THAT I HAVE RECENTLY READ ABOUT, I WOULD TRUST THE NATURAL FINISHES OVER WOOD THAN THE PLASTIC CONTAINERS ANY DAY.
