Also a very good source/list of toxic woods.
Keep your respirator handy when working, cutting, sanding these.
My dad developed a severe allergy to lignum vitae as a naval carpenter during WWII, probably resulted in his Chronic Obstructive Lung disease that eventually killed him. Lignum Vitae was commonly used for propeller shaft bearings. Guess the message is wear a respirator when working with rare/exotic wood species (teak included).

Here is a useful resource - a pdf copy of the Ship's Captain's Medical Guide.
