Good morning all,

I have a good supply of purple heart and pink rosewood and would like to use it for jazzing up cutting boards. Anyone see any problem with these woods for cutting boards?

purple heart should work fine,
I’ve never worked with pink rosewood, so i don’t know.

Rosewood is a potent sensitizer according to this chart. It might be best to avoid it for CBs.

Thanks for the input, the chart is great. It might be best to leave the rosewood alone..
