That really depends on how you are handling the wood, the wood, and tools you are using.If you are using power tools, gloves are not a good idea for safety reasons.
The is evidence that so called anti vibration gloves actually make things worse. ....... Because you tend to grip more tightly.I wear Impacto Air Gloves for sanding or anything that vibrates like grinders, string trimmers, chainsaws, lawnmower, etc. Didn't when young and now it doesn't take much to make them tingle.

Yes I make you about right Oddbod. Heavy gloves for abrasive building materials & the like, nitrile gloves for very hazardous liquids otherwise leave them in the drawer. Definitely a no no when using a bench grinder or any machine that could grab the glove finger between the wheel and rest as it'll take your finger with it!Standard “builders” gloves at just under a quid a pop online for rough timber.

Well I don't know wear that evidence comes from but in my case the gloves help. If I use my Dynabrade random orbit sander, gas powered string trimmer or chainsaw or any other tools that vibrate without the gloves my hands are tingling so bad in 5 minutes I have to quit. Do the same with the Air Glove on and the onset of the tingling doesn't begin for at least half an hour or more. I don't have to grip any harder than with any other glove on or bare handed. You can believe what ever you want and do whatever you like but I am convinced that if these gloves were available when I was young I wouldn't have the problems with vibration and cold that I do now.The is evidence that so called anti vibration gloves actually make things worse. .......
