Recently I developed a rash on my hands and I couldn't figure out why. My
wife suspected that it was the ash that I have been using recently.
I googled a little and ash (along with several other wood species) can cause
I guess I need to wear gloves when using ash for now on.
Anyone else been affected (dermatitis) from ash or other wood species?
Green or dry? For UK species (Fraxinus excelsior) it's notable that
the green timber and dust is quite different to when dried (green ash
sawdust turns pink while you watch) . Although it's generally regarded
as a benign timber, there have been anecdotal reports of more
sensitive people getting reactions to the green timber.
