Thanks, that’s Interesting but he doesn’t say anything about toxicity, perhaps you want to change your title to Hardness chart
These links might help on toxicity.

The Wood Database contains a paragraph on each wood that discusses that particular wood allergens and toxicity or lack thereof. It also has a section that discusses toxicity and allergens in general with a chart on same for each individual wood.
The woodworkers source and fine woodworking articles are not as complete but they do both list some other sources.

Thanks Bruce the guy selling the chart on his video does not say anything about toxicity nor did I see it on the close up of the chart in the video. You must have looked closer than I did. My apologies Kiefer

Hi Klaus…How well I know after getting sick 3 times a few years ago when working with Brazilian Rosewood. The prettiest wood I ever worked with and now I don’t touch it. It is 4stars on the toxicity chart on the wood database.

Here is the toxicity chart I used from there:

Good to share Klaus. I keep a binder in the shop with that info on it. Great information to have if you work with a lot of different woods.

Judging from all that information, it sounds like we should just abandon woodworking.
