Default Building wooden containers

How about the newer plastic wood ???

Depending on how high you wish to go, with some pressure treated
4x4 and these boards, you are in business.

I suppose I could just use pine and discard it when it rots, but how
about pine painted with exterior stain or other preservative?

How about plywood (non-PT)? Is it safe?
