Recently the Fed's announced that wood dust was a health hazard and known cancer agent. The furniture companies locally (Michigan's Big Three) now have dust monitors on the process lines. Let's face it if they're taking steps to prevent promblems, might be a good idea to follow their lead. Simple precautions like a real respirator not the paper filter that fits poorly, a down draft sanding table that can be homemade with a shop-vac and proper ventilation in shop areas. Also a word of caution that along with the health hazard of wood dust is the explosion potential with an open flame furnace in the shop.
