This also seems like it is not possible, i emailed many companies that make LCD's and they either tell me that thier displays dont have a video input, or the ones they showed me are $400 for just the LCD (with high bright or tft).
I think it is possible to waterproof an LCD with epoxy but you would have to research epoxy from people / companies who make model planes or rockets because wood is subject to humidity and cracks over time so modelers like to keep their work by using expoxy. There are epoxies that you mix and they become extremely hard and if you aren't careful, you could glue your fingers together and have to go to the hospital to get your fingers apart and hopefully you wouldn't have to lose any skin so use gloves. I'm also not sure if a plastic product like Bondo will work or not.
Commodore computers bought power supplies from China and they were encased in resin, got very hot but worked for years until they stopped working.
