I see a lot of posts on here of amazing pieces including multiple species of tropical hardwoods that are widely known to be on the endangered list. In addition, lots of tropical hardwood is harvested illegaly or from senstive environmental areas. Most people don't take the time to find out if the wood they buy is sustainable/legal or not.
This is just a friendly reminder that as wood workers, we have a responsibility to make sure the people harvesting the amazing wood that we buy are doing so ethically and sustainably. If you buy wood, make sure it's sustainably harvested. If you dont, your grand kids wont likely have the same wood to work with.
There's so much information out there about this but i'll post a couple links in the comments to give people an idea of what to look for.
