Shellac is used on a lot of baby and kids furniture because it is completely nontoxic. You can literally eat shellac flakes (though I don t recommend it, they taste terrible). You obviously can t drink liquid shellac, since denatured alcohol will cause blindness and/or death, but once the alcohol flashes off, it s perfectly safe to chew on the finished furniture.

It dissolves just as well in pure ethanol. ...... then you could drink it, maybe with a little orange juice. :-)
