Wood is a wonderful material, but sunshine, rain and seasonal temperature swings can make it look weathered and cracked in short order if that wood lives outdoors. This is fine for some applications, but not others. That’s what gave me the idea to build an outdoor display frame out of composite lumber for a local celebrity our community wanted to honour.
