I just got my Workbench mag, Vol 62, No 5, Issue 297, in, which I haven't read yet, but an article is about PVC Lumber. Its lead ins are: "Create long-lasting outdoor projects with a material that's as easy to work with as wood, but won't rot.
Pros: Won't rot, Dosen't have to be painted (but can be), No defects, Easy to cut and machine, Readily available.
Cons: Not designed for structural use, "Plastic" in appearance if left unpainted, Machined edges require priming and painting.
:eek: Shucky darn folks, what are they going to think of next?
