Nontoxic Finish

I'm having a hard time finding an appropriate finish for beer steins turned on the lathe. Do you know of any non-toxic finishes that are safe to use on turned steins that are going to actually be used?

Salad Bowl Finish, made by H. Behlen & Bro.. can be used on projects that will be in contact with food or drink. It contains only materials that ha ve been approved for contact with food by the U. S. Food and Drug Com mission.

Seventy-two hours drying time is required before the finish is safe for use with food. Salad Bowl Finish can be padded on which makes it especially useful for lathe projects. It can be purchased through Woodcraft Supply Corp., 313 Montvale Ave., Woburn MA 01888.
