wood isnt extremely
dangerous, but it can be mildly conductive, its flamable, and it can absorb water very easily and become extremely conductive. however you also cant ground a wood box because its not uniformly
conductive like a metal box is.
if you needed to adhere to electrical codes, wood is not an option. if you understand these extra risks, wood is not especially dangerous and should be fine to use for a personal project.
