I have a new project that will stand outside with no shelter at all. Exposed to wind, rain and direct sun.
I’d like to hear from you LJs what you think is the best wood for this job.
It will be a carved sign.
I tried to find some lumber yards open today, but the few I could find in on Saturday afternoon didn’t carry either cedar or redwood.
Years ago I made a short but very wide carved sign from cedar and it has never checked or shown any major problems at all. I don’t know which flavor of cedar it was because I didn’t buy it, but it didn’t have an aromatic scent when I cut it.
I also found some hemlock, but I have no clue about its properties.
Well, what do you think?
