I come here to ask for help regarding the wood – Afrormosia.
I am an Englishman living in Belgium. I am in the middle of renovating my house. We have always planned to have a wooden front door and have now started to get quotes form different companies for a front door. They all seem to offer Afrormosia as an excellent option for an external door. Its qualities seem to be excellent but I have done some research and have discovered that this wood is officially “Endangered”.
My question is this, if I were not to use Afrormosia for ecological/ethical reasons, what would be the best option?
Our front door faces the elements and needs to be high quality. I can buy an Afrormosia door here for around 2000 Euros but it appears this wood would not be a good ethical choice.
Any tips, advice, opinions are most welcome.
