At the Eggtoberfest. last year, as you entered the back area, on the left was a company that was marketing a modular system for the Eggs. They were using the "plastic" lumber, so it should last long and keep it's good looks. Does anyone remember who they were? I've lost the brochures that I got. Thanks

    I don't know anything about your question, but I will kick in that "plastic" deck material is not very good for building tables. Proceed with caution :)

  • it would be ok to use if the structure took into account that it behaves completely different than wood of a similar dimension.

    whether it is someone's cup of tea visually, it can be made to work as a table if done correctly. it certainly works as a deck, for example, and a deck would experience greater loads.

    it can't span very far, for example, but that's easy enough to overcome

    i'd look at other materials that cost less and look better, but if a dude wants plastic deck, it can be made to work

    I agree with you stike, but I have heard [and I don't really know] that the material in synthetic decking is not anything you want around food! :unsure:
    That is why I said "Proceed with caution." I'm sure this too can be overcome, but not by me :P
