many exotics have some serious toxic dustbest to work them with respiratorsand even long sleevessome have skin rash problems
wenge is really splintery i findi just use it for multi color accentslike many exotics(the cost justifies this too)

This looks good, I know what you mean with the sawdust. I forget what lumber it is, since I have only used it once, but I will know it when I see it, the dust on it was like straight chilli powder, you needed a mask, gloves and goggles just cutting it in the TS. My eyes still start to burn when I talk about it.
-- Martin ....always count the number of fingers you have before, and after using the saw.
