full disclosure, I have no affiliation with Africa Exotic Lumber in any way shape or form.
I was driving along Hwy 287 north of Dumas the other day and saw a small sign plain sign by the road
“Africa Exotic Lumber”. So I pulled in and talked with Peter Grobler, they primarily make furniture and trim. He imports directly from his brother in South Africa and while he speaks English really well, he has a very thick accent that can be sometimes hard to understand. He is very friendly and very knowledgeable. I rummaged in his scrap pile and pulled out Rhodesian Teak, Rosewood and Kiaat. I got about 25 bd ft for 40$
He said they will be increasing the selection later in 2011 to Ebony and others. It is a production shop not geared to individual customers so its cash/check only. On the whole I think I got some awesome pieces for basically a song.
