From what I gather reading a bunch on this site is that there are potentially a few issues, and they depend on application. What follows is in reference to making a cutting board.

Some say not to use nut type trees (think something like walnut) because of possible allergic reactions.

Some say not to use oak because of the large pores and potential for bacteria to get in to them.

I can’t comment on the accuracy of either of these, since I have not made a cutting board.
