what is MDO plywood? What outdoor board does not warp?

Date August 5, 2010

I am an artist working in stained glass mosaic. I currently use a particle board base but am worried about warping. I also want to create work that people can put outside – like on a deck or outside wall. What sign boards are light, sturdy, do not warp and are waterproof? And 1/2 or 5/8" thick, more or less.
