RE: Plastic Wood bows
In 1997 we ordered Victor Stanley picnic tables made from powder coated
steel tubing, with channeled reinforced plastic lumber. They have now been
outside for 5 years, and are in excellent condition, with no warping.
Unreinforced tables will bend. The cost in 1997 was $640 for a six foot
table with a one foot extension with a one foot extension for accessibility.

All recycled plastic picnic tables that I've ever seen have had their planks
bowed downward from sun, user weight and gravity.
I hear they're making them reinforced now, but haven't any proof of that.

We are about to build a boardwalk using Trex (plastic wood). We hear that
it needs more support and is not as forgiving as wood in adjusting to
heaving ground. Anybody used the material for this use? Dianna Fallon, New
