I picked up some beautiful Morado at my local lumber yard this weekend. I asked the owner whether he knew anything about woods he carried that were not food safe (end goal is for end grain cutting boards). His reply was “so long as you stay away from the rosewood family, you should be OK.”
So, after purchasing the Morado I went home and Googled it. Said it’s part of the rosewood family? Is this true?
Does anyone have any input on whether it’s safe to use on cutting boards? Google has been a bit unhelpful on this question.
I’m totally fine with using it for another project, but would like to know if anyone has any info on what it is about rosewood that isn’t safe. Or was this guy wrong?
Thanks for your help LJs.
