    paulownia

    Sounds like paulownia would be a good entarsia timber. So my next question is, how would paulownia work for the case of clock? Would it be too soft for a project like that? Does it split easily? Or is it farely stable.
    thanks kerrie

    If everyone will pardon a "carving" reference here on the boad, I'm working on a santa carving out of Paulonia right now. It's very soft (I'd say even softer than pine) but seems pretty consistant throughout the grain. It holds decent detail, and doesn't seem too sticky (with sap).

    The advantage of that wood is that it grows extremely fast--timber harvesters will plant it and keep cutting it off at ground level until it grows a foot thick in a year!

    paulownia timber

    Has anyone worked much with paulownia timber. I gather from what I have read it is the better pine. More stable and workable. Its native to china and developing plantations here in Australia. As far as I know the plantations here are manly used to make match sticks. And plywood.
    Any information on this timber would be gratefully recieved.
    Thanks kerrie

    He’s the one with the patience. At least i don’t ricochet off the walls as much as I used to! We certainly proved opposites attract. How dull life would be if we were the same.

    Glad to hear he is getting back on track. After seeing what my wife went through, after her fall, I wouldn't wish rehab or PT on anyone.

    It will sit on the coffee table for a couple of weeks/months - Until I finish the next one. Then it get relegated to the collection to await the next craft show. Or it may go to the art gallery for a few months.
