I bought this finish to use on a set of building blocks and a teether I made for daughter. Not only did it go on easy I used cheesecloth to apply it but it really brought out the color and natural grain of the wood making for an excellent finished product.

I initially found this Toy Maker Finish when I searched for a safe finish for my first grandchild's crib. I applied the finish using the 'wet sand' method and applied 3 coats. It went on easily, clean up was simple and it dried beautifully and quickly - no brush marks, air bubbles or runs. Unfortunately, we weren't able to use the crib so I packed it away and don't have pictures to share. I made a frame for a piece of stained glass a few weeks ago and used the Toy Maker finish on it, also using the 'wet sand' method. It turned out great. This finish is a great product, moderately priced and easy to work with. I highly recommend it to anyone who has a project to finish, especially projects that children will be exposed to. Thanks Rockler!

I will never use anything BUT this product. I have several pieces of my grandmother's furniture form the 20's. They are refinished to look like new. I tried the poly spray on products with little to NO luck at all. Especially on large table tops. This product is flawless. It can't be shipped to all sections of California [due to local regulations] which makes no sense whatsoever. You can put two coats on in a days work. Highly recommend.

My dad had some black walnut in his garage, it was given to him buy my grand father when he cut wood from his land in Georgia 40 years ago. My dad held on to it waiting to make something special with the last few pieces left. He passed away a few years ago and my mom passed in July so as we cleaned out the garage we found it. My husband held on to it because he knew it was very special wood. When we heard our daughter was expecting our first grand child my husband knew it was what the wood was waiting for, Sophia’s baby cradle. When we gave it to our daughter at her baby shower the look on her and her husbands face was all we needed to know that we made the right choice when it came to the finish because it turned out so beautiful. We were so glad we searched and found your site with the Toy Maker's Finish. It was so perfect and easy to apply, no worries about brush lines, he used 3 coats and the finish was flawless. This heirloom piece will be around for a long time still looking beautiful. He will be using it on many more projects not just baby things. Thanks, Tom and Sue Klein
"Every time I have been in a Rockler store around the country I have left feeling that I received wonderful service and most always had exactly what I needed in stock at a fair to great price. the only complaint, if it can be called that, is that I have to drive over 45 minutes to reach the nearest Rockler store. My wife probably appreciates that distance, as I am certain that if one was as close as I wished it to be, we would have very little left in our checkbook!" -
