I got some from John White in Murwillumbah in Northern NSW. They machined it to the required finished dimensions and arranged transport to Sydney.

i understand he has since transferred his business to Geoff Moase

Geoff's contact details are :

Phone no 0411 676 854
Business Address 3/8 Alex Fisher Drive Burleigh Heads Qld 4220
Email address geoff@paulowniatimbersales.com.au
Web site paulowniatimbersales.com.au

Hope it works out

As you said, John white has retired.

I bought several batches of Paulownia from Geoff Moase, but he was tragically killed in a surfing accident at Lombok last September.

I'm about half way through a build using paulownia
Sourced from paulownia timber and plantation shutters in mordialloc. They have pre cut strips, DAR and bead and cove.
Beautiful to work with, but I just waited for 4 months to get more timber supplies as they were out. Very frustrating as now it will be winter by the time I start glassing.
