Wood is a bad choice, First of all it doesn't get ride of heat that well at all, secondly it would be hard to maintain since the inside would dry out faster then the outside then you have possible wood particles and such falling on your parts....

agree on ur fast two comments, disagree on your last one, that depends on the type of wood you use, not all wood would chip or flake

So long as you use a good sealer, you can use almost any wood.

I recommend use multiple coats of polyurethane, as it actually encases the wood. It's plastic after all.

polyurethane also retains heat better, though, than normal wood, i woudnt go crazy with the multiple coats, a couple will do fine
