A thoughts crossed my mind . I'm making a crib for a new born and i'm wondering if there is any 100% safe glue i should be using and what finishes i can also use .
I'm making this out of an un used unidentified teakish door frame .It smells vile when i'm cutting it .Are there any issues with my wood choice for the child .
Any advice greatly appreciated .

Im certainly no expert here, and I realise that smell is no guarantee of safe/unsafe, but if the wood smells vile when cut, then perhaps a different choice of wood might be better anyway whether it is safe or not? A wood that you can positively identify perhaps?

For glues - as above, Titebond 3 seems OK. FDA approved for indirect food use. See link http://www.titebond.com/Libraries/Liter ... .sflb.ashx
And the MSDS for TB3 : http://www.franklininternational.com/ms ... ko0020.pdf
Ok, so a little long winded - but nothing in there to suggest harmful to children.

Cheers,
Adam

Thanks for all the replies . It looks like Titebond 3 in the way to go then .

Yes Adam you are perfectly right i should review the timber for the side rails that smells a bite , vile may be an exaggeration but i shouldnt really take any chances .

The Osmuk stuff looks good but i may have problem getting it around here so i 'll found a local supplier of Chestnut food safe oil that should do .

Cheers
