September 2016 - Paulownia is renown for its light weight. Lighter than pine, it has a high strength to weight ratio. It is an excellent choice for surfboard cores and musical instruments. The grain is similar to southern swamp ash. It can be used in place of ultra light swamp ash when light weight is a priority. Paulownia averages 1.5-1.7 LB per board foot. It is also known as Empress Wood.
