I’m not sure the word in the title is the right one, but it’s a toy for a small baby to grip, to feel, to watch. Saw the little elephant in a catalogue and thought I could do it myself. It’s for my grand-niece. The wood is cherry, the finish is linseed oil.

When dealing with infants, shellac should be the only finish.
They put things in their mouths, and linseed if it’s blo, will have driers in it. When they teethe that’s not a good finish. Shellac is edible, the pharma’s use it on pills to allow it to go down the throat.
You may want to redo with Shellac.
