Is there anybody who has experience with the paulownia (kiri) wood? It is a hardwood with a soft surface. But it is lightweight and strong. Somewhere in the internet i read the comparison as aluminium under the woods.
My question now is, is this wood suitable for making handles and totes for western saws and planes?
What are the cons and pros?
The background of these questions is, I have an “Atkins” panel saw from the flea market with a totally brittle handle and I want to make new handle for it.
