| | (Siamese) Rosewood, is it THAT Dangerous?
Well, I've started on my first bass guitar build, a fretless 4 string made from a body and neck of Teak, and a Siamese Rosewood fretboard.
I've done some research and found that these Rosewoods can cause allergic reactions without a proper mask of some kind. When I consulted this with my shop teacher and according to him, it causes some kind of cancer, and he promptly finished his rant with a "I'll never work with the stuff".
Also, the workshop I have to work in is about the size of a 3 car garage, with 15 other students crammed in.
Has anyone worked on Rosewood (specifically Siamese), and what kind of precautions did you take?
