This stuff cuts with regular woodworking tools. When you drill holes, use spade bits or Forstner bits. You can sew through it with no problem. It is completely waterproof, unlike "waterproof" panel board. It costs about $30 for a sheet, and is well worth it.
I'll look into it. But you know I am seriously old school, and cheap. But I will likely heed your advice as I know it's always good.
