Is Arbutus wood safe for childrens toys/teething rings?
by Gareth J Clayton
I have seen your website on numerous occasions and I am always inspired by your craft!
I live in Victoria, although I'm originally from the UK.
I like to carve wood and have numerous projects on the go.
I have been able to come across some nice pieces of arbutus on my walks and was wondering if you could advise me on something.
I know you make both food utensils and children's toys from the wood. Is it 100% safe for this kind of use? I trust that you are using it correctly of course! I was just thinking about making some of the wood I have found into a small toy for a very small baby/toddler?
Any advice you may be able to offer me would be gratefully received!
Thanks so much for reading this message.
