Woody\'s Question

I was wondering if anyone knew what the old Woody's used as the wood for their molding and stuff. I would like to make some new door trim panels for the CJ and I love the look of wood. I just want some input on which type of wood will hold up well with all types of weather, really wet and cold and hot, everything. OK, I will let the creative minds do there stuff.

My 2 cents...... Teak is used for boat decks and trim(only the real expensive ones or antiques). It only requires oiling(teak oil) every so often. I think it is a darker, maybe brown, color. Oak was used in autos years ago. Maybe West Systems epoxy resin encapsulation would hold up for years of service?

Cypurus (spelling?) is also good for outdoor applications. I have seen it used on lawn furniture and turned a nice shade when left natural.

A friend of mine had a 32' foot boat made out of mahogany. It seemed to hold up quite well. Nickmil.
