Is it okay to use the treated post for an indoor application?

Q: I’d like to use 6×6 lumber for the posts of a bed, but the only 6×6 material I can find at the home-improvement store is pressure-treated. Is it okay to use the treated post for an indoor application?

 

A: The simple answer is yes, many treated wood products do not emit any vapors and are safe for interior use. Check use information on specific products. However, treated wood should never be used for cutting boards, countertops or any application where it may become a component of food.
