Beautifully hand-made hand planes in Australian grown Paulownia timber. Includes bag.
Paulownia is descended from native Asia and is now an Australian plantation timer, grown in four states of Australia.
Paulownia is light in weight and pale blonde in colour with it's own character grain but approximately the same strength as cedar. It has a magic fell like a firm balsa wood. It is very light and can be painted or stained to resemble any timber. It is easily limed and when painted does not experience oily seepage.
Because paulownia resembles Western Red Cedar in weight and strength it is increasingley being used in the marine industry. Recent test have proven paulownia extremely stable and termite resistant. The timber is gathering rave reviews world wide.
Most importantly, rainforests are not being ravaged to harvest paulownia.
