Hi all ive been planing a hardwood i got some weeks ago its called Wawa its really straight grain and planes nice but since i started my skin is so itchy its the same feeling as when ive used fibre glass insulation in the past ,does anyone else suffer this and can i do anything to prevent it apart from going in the shed dressed like a forensic scientist
The dust from Cypress, if I get it on my face around my eyes, causes my eyes to get red and puffy, and they itch really bad. It takes a couple of days to clear up. So now I wear a full vented facemask when I am sanding it.
I have never had any other reactions to any other types of wood.
thanks fellas glad its not just me i’ll have to take care as my wife already has a lung disease at least she’ll stay out of the shed lol (i just read this out to her and she said i’m terrible ), sorry not everyone understands the liverpool humour , are there any other species that are a known irritant (wives not included)
