Lwllms, I hear that. I have about 150 bd ft of cocobolo and a big chunk of that is suitable for turning. I was thinking I would have to sell it after my run in….but with a Tyvek suit and respirator, I didn’t even see a bump.

Once this cocobolo is gone, I will only work on if for a highly commsissioned job as I do not see any reason to tempt fate. By the way, the Tyvek coveralls are amazing even though “disposable.” I will probably do a review on them as there seems to be alot more LJ’s allergic to woods then I imagined.

The Tyvek’s are not that expensive – I got a case of 25, extra large, for 79.99 and free shipping. The run between $2.50 each up to $14.00 each depending on thickness and “brand name.” The inexpensive ones seem to work just fine for a woodworker’s purpose.
