Wood used to make lawn display figures
This is a skid of the water-resistent wood that we use to make our displays.

We don't use plywood!
We don't use MDF!
 We don't use particle board!
  We don't use sign board!

We use a special type of manufactured wood that is made for outdoor use.
You cannot purchase this wood from your local Home Depot or Lowe's!
It costs us 2-3 times more compared to the wood
that some people use to make their own lawn displays.

But we know that it is worth it!

cut out by hand
The wood is cut out by hand using templates,
then the edges are rounded for a better appearance, paint adhesion and longer life.

sealer
Then it is sent to our spray room for a coat of wood sealer.
First the front is sprayed, the next day we spray the back also.

We give it another day to dry and after another light hand sanding
it is then sent to our art department.
