One of my favorites is Humabilt‘s wheatcore doors which are composed of 85% waste wheat straw and free of synthetic [urea] formaldehyde. Their wide selection of finely-crafted, yet affordable, styles is available in both paint- and stain-grade doors. The company is located in the quaint, picturesque town of Ashland, Oregon, with a centrally-located manufacturing facility to service the entire United States.

TruStile offers an optional line of [urea] formaldehyde-free, solid core MDF doors in true rail and stile construction. Certified by SCS (Scientific Certification Systems), the doors contain 82% recycled content and are manufactured with low-emitting adhesives. The company abides by a reclamation process which keeps 65% of the MDF waste generated during manufacturing out of the landfill.

Other noteworthy companies that ship anywhere in the U.S. and use reclaimed wood for their doors, include Albany Woodworks, Inc. in Albany, Louisiana and Alternative Timber Structures, Inc. in Tetonia, Idaho. Albany Woodworks custom crafts fine doors from antique heart cypress or antique heart pine. Alternative Timber Structures offers a beautiful line of doors that utilize reclaimed species such as Fir, Cypress, Oak, Cedar, and Redwood, to name a few.
