General Finishes Woodturners Finish
I just ordered some of this finish from Woodcraft. It is General Finishes Woodturners Finish. I got the 8 oz bottle to give it a go. I e-mailed the company and she told me it was absolutely Food-safe, durable, acid resistant, alcohol resistant, water resistant and chemical resistant as well quick drying, easy to apply and VOC compliant are all desirable attributes. They said it is a non-toxic water/oil urethane hybrid for use on wood turnings, salad bowls, bowls, platters, plates, etc. She also said with the quick drying you could put 6 coats on in about a half hour and it buffs really nicely. I also asked about durability and she said it is pretty much the same formula that is used on floors but non-toxic. She said yes it was tough. So I am going to turn a couple of plates for the LOML and I to eat on to see how it holds up. If nothing else I think that would be a great finish for ornaments, mini-birdhouses, etc.
