    I have been making cut outs from plywood since I was really small and I would never switch to coro. Plywood is strong, cleans easily and IMO looks better.

    As you can see, there are good folks on both sides of the issue.
    I was a plywood fan for years. Our park drive-thru uses around 200 of the plywood variety. We do yearly maintenance on about 1/3 of them, rotating them in the maintenance schedule.

    Then I saw a dozen done out of Coro. They were 7 years old, and didn't look older than 1. Now I'm conflicted, maintenance or ...

    It is a personal choice and which ever you take may you have fun making them and showing them to the world.
    Live, Laugh, Love.

    That looks to be similar to one of the winfield collection nativities (I have one like it). https://www.thewinfieldcollection.co...craft-Patterns

    I guess I'm not one to throw my hat into the ring since I just buy out all of Boscoyo's stuff on clearance, but Boscoyo did show me that you can insert wooden dowel rods into coro and it'll be stronger. How do you punch pixels into plywood, anyway? Just drill a lot and use a lot of glue?
