i have read osha reports on protective gloves and respirators need to be used when cutting or drilling pressure treated lumber, as the dust is harmfull, but I'm sure a lot of that is over rated.

I think MSU did some research on the subject of pressure treated lumber and it's involvement with agriculture and found minimal impact.

I think pressure treating involves loading the wood with copper, chromium and arsenic. probably plenty safe as long as you're not trying to eat the wood or put it in with the fish!

Nice one man, I got a question for all,
I finishing up a stand for my 37gals, and the top frame is a little bit off balance like 1/10 of an inch when I put a piece of wood on top, any way to fill that little gap or I have to sand off other corner to make the thing look good?
