Awkward but Important Question
I'm new to turning and have only done some pens and bottle stoppers so far. I hope this question doesn't offend anyone, as thats not my goal, its just a question that needs answering lol.
My girlfriend saw my finished stuff and has since been begging me to make her an adult toy on the lathe. I turned a couple, and was actually fun and really educational. My question is what finish would be appropriate.
I know salad bowl finish would work, because most of the people that make these things use that. But would a CA finish work? I mean it would be much more durable and after it dries/cures on the lathe wouldn't it be non toxic? Im a total newbie in finishes, although i have done some CA with good success.
I can post pics of the two that i have done, but do not want unless asked in case it would offend some. Also, you wouldn't look at them and immediatly think they are adult toys, so its not over the top haha.
Thanks for any responses, looking forward to some input!
