Need to select a backing material that will be light (minimize total weight of piece) and strong.

Need to drill and affix ~20 count 0.5 lb sculptural pieces which jut out (thus need some thickness to the backing for screwing in) across the piece.

Coating and putting a nice surface on plywood is what's coming to mind right now, but would love to find and lighter option.

Also thought of a frame with 2x4s only in the locations I'm going to drill and hollow in the spaces in between.

Any other advice appreciated!

Also looking for advice or help on:
  • Best method of hanging this heavy piece on wall
  • Strong screws/method of screwing sculptural pieces on and off for movement and transport
