High-heeled geta

Okay, I've been digging through archives, but I haven't really been finding what I need. Basically, I need some high-heeled/platform geta. This pair on eBay could work if they had to, but I'd actually like them to be higher than that.

A site that came up a lot in some of the older threads about geta was Karankoron, and while they had some that would have been great, it doesn't look like the site has been updated in several years. Also, the pair they had (these) are both out of my price range ($100) and out of stock.

Does anyone else have any suggestions? I've been looking for wooden (or faux wood) platform sandals to modify and haven't been having a lot of luck on that front, either.

There are a bunch of geta on Etsy as long as you don't mind them being the traditional geta with blocks under the heel and in the middle of the shoe.

Truly high-heeled ones are pretty much impossible to find pre-made unless you have $$$$ to spend.

You'd have to make them yourself, but if you have access to power tools it shouldn't be too hard.

The closest available would be maiko style geta, which are called okobo or pokkuri geta, which you can sometimes find on ebay. They don't have the gap in the middle, but they're pretty high. They can be fairly expensive though.
