I've been told that the pressure treating gives off fumes indoors. Better to use 4x4s that are not pressure treated indoors.

At least we could find a fairly straight one....but the "pressure' treatment does not seem as good as in the past. These posts used to be heavy, now they are pretty light, even for a 65 year old. Used to replace a locust post that was in the ground over 50 years...doubt this one will last even 10. Not a terrible price.

Perfect for building a handrail to help an older homeowner! We bought this 12’ piece, cut it in two (cheaper than buying 8’ timbers, and our Home Depot doesn’t carry 6’ lengths). One 60lb bag of concrete each pole and the next day we were able to attach our handrail. It’s a pretty easy, low cost project and it made a real difference for our neighbor, who is soon undergoing hip replacement surgery. We found copper solar-powered post caps that provide both light and weather protection (shown) - it really jazzes up the project!

Used these are the corner post for my raised rose beds. Beds are made of 2' X 12' treated boards are 8' long X 4' wide and the corner post will make these beds sturdy for a number of years. I also used them on my flower beds as supports.
