>From a wood toxicity data sheet I've got floating around....


I - irritant 
S - sensitizer  	

S - skin
R - resp 


D - dust
W - wood 

C - common

I've also heard that repeated exposure can cause silicosis of the lungs,
though I've been unable to verify this. From personal experience, I've had
significant skin irritation from both the dust and the wood. Finished, it
shouldn't pose a problem, though I'd avoid having the kids chew on it. I'd
at the very least advise a good dust mask.
