I need to make a couple of lawn ornaments for some friends, and the plans call for 3/4" exterior plywood. Since I will need to lay out a lot of curves and other details, I happened to think that MDO might provide a better platform on which to perfom the layout, as well as the fact that it might provide a more durable surface once it has been painted. However, I have minimal experience with MDO, so am interested in any opinions that you may have. I am also curious about how well the overlay will remain attached while cutting the curves, etc. Thank you.
