Sheesham is also used to make musical instruments, specifically for percussion due to the resonance abilities of all rosewood.
Here are 5 Advantages / Benefits of Sheesham Wood Furniture at Home:
1. Carving Friendly Hardwood:
As being said, Sheesham Wood is by far the most widely used and rated as Best Hardwood for Carving. The wood is hard and has medium coarse texture making it the best wood for carving and engraving purpose. It does not warp or bend or split as many other wood types.
Artisans find it a lot easier to work upon due to its high tensile strength and customers just adore the carving and its unique grainy structure. Despite having a granular surface, Sheesham Wood can be hand-waxed or polished in different shades to get smooth texture and this also somehow provides a termite resistivity to the product – again a good thing to have at moisture or termite-prone locations.

Indian Rosewood is highly durable and long-lasting and is in fact decay-resistant. The heartwood, in particular, is very durable and is known to have natural resistivity to dry termites. After all, furniture needs to withstand extreme weather conditions and should be tough enough to withstand rough handling.

For those nature “raw” lovers, Sheesham Wood provides a long range of shades – ranging from plain withered look to dry redwood shade. And what to say about the grains structure. The grain structure changes to different shades when it comes in contact with a different lighting condition. Also, it can be hand-waxed to increase the shine and luster.
