I’m posting this for a friend of mine. A couple of days ago my friend made 4 cuts about 3′ long in some air dried cherry with his table saw in a basement shop. With in a few minutes his thoat started to close down. He went outside and felt better after about 20 minutes. He and I have searched the internet and cannot find any referances to allergic reactions to cherry. One side note is that prior to going into the basement to work his wife was cleaning the oven. He has used cherry in the past with no ill effects. Has anyone heard of this reaction?
