Re: allergic wood reactio

Yes, some people have allergic reactions like this to certain wood families. I've heard it most often in Rosewoods but it happens in others as well. You may also have a reaction to the glue used in the ply.
The easiest way to deal with it is wear a tyvek type jumpsuit and real respirator, or just work for very short periods of time and minimize your exposure with some good vacuums or exhaust fans.
