I understand that dust from synthetic wood is bad for you,and there was a school scare about Jelutong dust as well and they reverted to Basswood,some woods are poison to some people and can make you come out in a rash,what about those old shipwrights and the amount of wood they used cut with large drawblades,wonderful craftsmanship.

I think dust, generally, is bad for you.  Mahogany is carcinogenic apparently and think how much of that the boatbuilders and cabinet makers must have imbibed.  My grandfather was a cabinet maker but he always cut with scrapers, never used sand paper, saying wood should always be cut, never scratched.
I get a scratchy rash with oak, which came on after I restored our old canal boat.

I once worked at Thorp Modelmakers in London and we made a 1/500th scale model of Cardiff!!  We used Mansonia, a purple hard wood that we only discovered after the model was made had barbed dust.  Breath it in, it don't come back up!

Just be careful.
