What is Sheesham wood? Sheesham wood, also known as Indian Rosewood or Dalbergia sisso, is a deciduous tree, native to the Indian Subcontinent. After teak, it is the most important cultivated timber tree of the Punjab, which is the largest producer of Sheesham timber in Pakistan and India. Aside from timber supply, the tree is planted on roadsides, along canals and to provide welcome, natural shade for tea plantations. Why does Sheesham wood make good furniture? Sheesham wood has a beautiful irregular grain structure which is very distinctive in appearance and can be polished to a fine finish. The timber itself is strong and durable, maintaining its shape well during handling and construction. Given this strength and density, it is also an ideal material for decorative carvings and can be easily seasoned for future stability. Sheesham wood is known for its durability, natural rich grains, and longevity. Unlike the board furniture, sheesham wood features natural grains that vary from piece to piece, thus making each and every piece unique and beautiful. Almost any furniture, be it a bed, coffee table, sofa sets, cabinet or end tables, all can be crafted with sheesham wood.
