I would add that inhaling any wood dust should be avoided, especially the species that are known to cause allergic reactions, like Walnut. MDF dust can be extremely fine, so a good dust collector and/or mask should be used.

Here's a link that probably has more info than anyone really wants, but.....

While walnut can cause allergic reactions, ebony and teak wood dusts are really toxic and need by all means to be avoided.

I haven't seen that they're highly toxic, only that severe reactions are rare and it causes sensitivity issues.

No wood should be sanded or sawed (especially with power tools) without a mask being worn by the worker or, at the very least, using a decent dust collection system. It's not reasonable to assume that a HEPA filter will be included but some shop vacs have that and it would be a good idea to use it.
