Unless the table is veneer it will be fine. If the wood is already pretty smooth I would start at 220 and then 320. If the wood has slight planer marks you might need to back down to 120 or 150 grit. If the wood is pretty rough like planer tear out you might need to back down to 80 or 100 grit. I have heard beech dust is hazardous, but it certainly isn't good, so wear a respiratory. You should wear a respiratory when generating fine wood dust anyway.
