- Jul 11 6:49 AMTo purchase Paulownia wood, since Home Depot is unlikely to carry it, you may want to check here, http://www.worldpaulownia.com/html/paulownia_warehouse.html
There are lots of places that do carry more exotic woods.

Several pair that I have (all made in the 1900s, I think) are paulownia,
photos taken in the 1800s depict paulownia blanks being prepared to be made
into geta, and a several references (web and print) discuss paulownia as a
common construction material for geta in period. The geta that I have are
light in weight and show surprising little wear.
Any other wood being commonly used that anyone knows about?
