This is an old thread. But I was seeking info on rubber wood myself and came across it so just in case any one else does the same, I felt compelled to add some updated info.

In my searching, I found this article:

There seems to be some verification for this. I’m not sure if that makes it all evil, or if it’s mostly ok, or whatever. But it does seem that you can’t just buy this at your local supplier anyway. In short, I personally wouldn’t want to build with this and I don’t think I even want it in my house. My wife and I are shopping for dining room chairs for the table I built and this is what lead us to ask, “What is this Parawood / Rubberwood even these high end places are all selling?” I don’t have the time or skill to build the chairs, but when we buy them, I think I want them out of North American oak or maple or alder, not this garbage.
