I made a small solid maple stool for my daughter’s first birthday—relatively simple, small footstool that is about 8” tall, about a foot wide. The top has the letters of her name cut out like puzzle pieces.
I have sanded the entire stool to a wonderful soft finish (I love the feel of well-sanded maple) and now it is time to finish it. I have very little experience finishing maple. I don’t want to add any color – only something to protect it.
I have made a few small projects out of solid maple in the past which I simply finished with a few coats of danish oil – but this project is a bit different in that it needs to be protected from the abuse that will be subjected by a 1-year-old.
Any advice is welcome.
