About Paulownia Wood
Paulownia is known in Japanese as Kiri (桐), Paulownia wood is very light, fine-grained, and warp-resistant. The wood of Paulownia is as valuable timber for the manufacturing of furniture, musical instruments, in boat construction and many other areas where an aesthetic and light wood is a requirement. Due to the stability in accordance to its low weight, Paulownia wood is considered as the "aluminum" among the wood species. It is used for chests, boxes, and clogs. Its low silica content reduces dulling of blades, making it a preferred wood for boxes to hold fine Japanese edge tools.

Paulownia forms a light wood, with a delicate honey-yellow to light gray color. Its surface is characterized by a silky shine. The characteristic grain of the wood is particularly eye catching due to its broad annual growth rings.
