What's a good way to seal my case?


#1

Long story short, I dyed my case with an analine dye. Apparently it’s pretty toxic and i had a trip to the hospital.

i’ve spent a lot of time on this case that I don’t want to just start over. If I tough the case now (it’s been about 2 months just sitting) the blue dye coloru comes off on my hand. I’m assuming it’s just the wood grain that’s raised and coming off.

What are my options here? Sand it down and find a clear sealer or is there something else I can do?

From doing a quick readover of aniline dyes in Wikipedia, just touching it is still pretty dangerous, since it can be absorbed through the skin. I’m thinking that the best solution is to seal that bad boy up.

Just be safe and start over. It’ll come out better than the first and as a small bonus, won’t send you to the hospital.

I guess I can drag my saws in from the shed.
