Beware that the finish has to be consumable once cure.  I would use Shellac.  The issue is when the child starts teething.

 

Not to be a naysayer, but this is only a cradle and child will only use it to 3 or 4 months of age.

Best I can remember, by the time kids are old enough to stand and teethe, they'd be out of a cradle (though not necessarily a crib).

This is what Charles Niels says about food safe finishes + another surprise (at least to me) about Arm R Sean and salad bowl finish.

I'm not agreeing or disagreeing I'm just presenting the video.

All I am sorry you are correct it the commerical requirement for edible finish is for a Crib not a craddle and is only on the top of the rail.  That is why commerical cribs has a plastic cover on the top rail.  The picture thru me off I thought it was a very large craddle/crib.   Thanks to all who followed up.

Probably the water based.  John Moody uses it and loves it.  Like any water based finish you'd have to raise the grain and sand it back.  That it my morning project today.

I'm considering 1 lb. cut dewaxed shellac before the water based. Shouldn't need to raise the grain. Plus, shellac pops the grain, where the clear water based has no effect on the grain.

That would be Seal Coat Gene and I'm leaning that direction.  The trick will be using a smaller drop feed sprayer so that the spindles don't give me fits.

Is "Seal Coat" a brand? I have an el cheapo HVLP and it sprays Zinsser Bulls Eye Clear really good. If that "Seal Coat" is Zinssers sanding sealer, why not just use the Bulls Eye and, be done with it...well, 'cept for the top coats.

There's a good option.
