Topic tags/keywords: question finishing

I have to make some toy box’s for a day care center. The ones they have now are very well worn from the many washings with bleach they get. What would be a good finish that would stand up to the bleach washings? The wood would be maple with natural finish.
Thank You

Def. a polyurethane. That’s what they use on floors, so it should hold up best. A marine poly or varnish would be good too.

You might want to coating them with epoxy. It’s kind of like encasing them in plastic but it’ll be tough as nails. I haven’t actually done it myself but I’ve read about others doing it.

Have your say...
