After reading Karsons “Table Clock” project and hearing about his allergic reation to the wood he used i read some more about toxic wood species on the internet.
I think it’s important that everyone should read up about the woods they are using and take the appropraite action to prevent allergic reactions.
i have heard many stories about people using exoitic and spalted woods and having major problems (eg. lung cancer) later on in life.
there is a good website to advise you about woods and their toxicity-
there are also lots of books out there with good info in them
thanks for reading
