Mahogany. Jarrah. What do you want it to look like?
Sturdy. Stable. Machines well. Takes finishes well. Reacts predictably
to UV. Fits your budget.
Our front door gets a fair amount of abuse, so it's made of fiberglass. It
was going to be painted red in any case.

IF he could afford the purchase, it'd be -mighty- hard to get that
country through Customs, so you might want to suggest cypress to him
instead, Rob. ;)

I made my entry door and sidelights from Red Oak. They have been up for
about 2 1/2 years, and just got their first light sanding, followed by
a coat of Spar Varnish. No sign of warping, or other problems so far.
I live in Colorado Springs, which is a fairly dry climate, and the
entryway is covered, getting only a little sun in the winter, so I'm
not sure what the results would be in other climates.
