cocobolo did a number on me years ago when I was turning some pieces for a clock I was building. Even with the antihistimines, I head plugged up something fierce. Seems like a got a bit of a rash as well on the backs of my hands and wrists. I would shower immediately after every turning session which may or may not have helped.

If there is a next time, I’m going to rig some sort of positive ventilator and/or a dust collection. As with all allergies, there is always that one possibility that the next attack could be your last.
