Several wood toxicity charts on the web some easier to read & understand than others but none have a complete list.

Some woods like Cocobolo only a question of time before becomes a problem for you. Some people with no known allergies have immediate reactions to some woods.

All wood dust will become a problem for woodworkers if not immediate, over time whether working with domestic or exotic. So, besides PPE, need equipment like dust collector and air filters in your shop. Could really use a filter for my shop.
