Someone just told me that a wood called Red Grandis was a good choice to use for the entrance door I plan to make. I had never heard of it before. Does anyone have experience with this species? Such as warping potential and staining, etc. thanks

It's a Eucalyptus species. Looks something like mahogany, but softer and paler. Comes out of Uruguay plantations. Readily available.
