    When the time comes for a consumer to select the wood and finish types for a given outdoor project, there is a wide variety of sources of information, articles, and opinions available. Occasionally, these sources will conflict, mostly due to the data available at the time of publication, or practical experience based on a snapshot of conditions at a given time period. It is our hope to make this article available as a tool for the consumer to weed through the confusion, obtain the best system for the particular application, and understand the compromises that can result from other choices. A bibliography is included for more in- depth research.
