Teak, Iroko, Ebony, Padouk are some that cause problems with their dust. Ebony can be like pepper. Padouk covers everything in a fine red dust. Extraction is neccessary for all woods.

If you have respiratory problems, I've run into issues with cedar... Cedar oils can be very irritating to your lungs. Funny that the thing that gives it the great scent can cause problems.
