Proposition 65


ABOUT CALIFORNIA PROPOSITION 65 

We care about our customers' safety. Many of the products listed on our web site require a California Prop 65 warning as most are used to work raw wood which creates wood dust. Some products contain chemicals such as nickel compounds, acrylic dust and progesterone. Both Wood dust and these other chemicals are substances known to the State of California to cause cancer. California's Proposition 65 entitles California consumers to special warnings for products that contain chemicals known to the state of California to cause cancer and birth defects or other reproductive harm if those products expose consumers to such chemicals above certain threshold levels. Because our web site lists multiple items per page, we are providing ample warning by providing the ability to obtain clear and reasonable Prop 65 warnings prior to completion of your purchase decision. We have further notified our vendors to be certain product packaging is clearly labeled with correct warnings if needed per Prop65 guidelines. For more information www.p65warnings.ca.gov or call 916-445-6900.
