Found some articles about effects that some wood dusts can have. They range from pretty serious to minor irritations. It’s pretty interesting, and good to know. Has effects, and common reactions to over 375 differnt types of wood.

I love exotic woods.
That said I know to be careful with lots of them.
That said, I’ve learned to be careful with ALL woods, and tools.
We only get two eyes, one set of ears, one set of lungs, etc.
Protect yourself and use reasonable precautions all the time :)
What is your safety worth?
