Some boards of the same wood can be up to 3/4 as strong as the other pieces so smaller strips all mixed up will keep the flex even on both sides. Smaller strips helps me get a more rounded concave also.
I'm using cedar and not paulownia because its much easer to get in the US unless you buy bulk from China.
Cedar weighs a bit more than paulownia but you can make it a bit thinner with close to the same strength. Check out my website I have construction photos on how I build my boards.
