  • Child's Train

    Just about finished a wooden train for the Granddaughter. Engine, caboose and 7 cars that spell BRIANNA. The paint used is non-toxic but left a dull look to everything. Any suggestions on applying a gloss finish that is still child-safe?

    I just went to Google and typed in "non-toxic polyurethane" and surprisingly 473 results came up. There's one on the first page listed on amazon.com that looks promising for your project. I hope this helps.

      Mike--I use a spray on gloss made by krylon & available from Walmart. I use this for finishing off duck & fish decoys & childrens puzzles painted with acrylics. I believe the numbers are either 1301 or 1303. Takes 2 or 3 coats.

          have no idea if this would work on wood but for models I spray or dip them in future acrylic floor wax it dries hard and is extremly glossy as far as being non toxic I have no idea all the bottle says is not to get solution in eyes ext......... so when its dry my guess would be its safe HTH

            Back in the late 90's I bought a Incra 2000 Miter gauge. Incredibly precise. The problem was that it only adjusted in one direction, It rarely gets used. It locks in to half degrees. More recently I bought a Kreg fence which has a pin that precisely locates the frequently used angles.
            That is...

            The crafters market here in Kerrville, TX is $25 per 10x10 spot per event. We sell 8 months out of the year, Jun/Jul is too hot, and Jan/Feb is too cold. No insurance requirement but we do have to show a sales tax permit and collect sales tax.

            Personally I would never sell in a venue that...

            Ours are run by the state Ag Dept. They have very strict rules as to masks and distancing. The Ag Dept does come and visit to make sure rules are being followed. We stand behind the table and use the tailgate for packaging. I have people place their credit card in the reader on my phone and remove...

            Linda - Here is my gimmick for the Incra 1000SE on my SS CNS. I scratched a line 3/4-inch in from the blade end of the fence. I then use a ruler to set that line 1-inch from the side of a carbide tooth on the blade. Then I line the 1-inch mark on the fence ruler to the scratch line.

            Now,...
