Extensive information on domestic & exotic hardwoods.
Not to be confused with East Indian rosewood (dalbergia latafolia) Dalbergia sissoo is indigenous to west India. Also known as shesham wood. Our Indian rosewood is a beautiful golden brown with darker and lighter contrasting grain lines. Indian rosewood is used for furniture, high end turning and it tonal qualities make it a great choice for musical instruments. Dalbergia sissoo is a very stable wood. The wood can be dried sufficiently for use in furniture by the sun alone. The tree is an evergreen and grows heights of 50-70’ and up to 3’ in diameter. Being a true rosewood a wonderful fragrance is emitted when cutting. Dalbergia sissoo is one of the softest rosewoods. It machines very well, however sometimes because of the irregular shape of the tree grain reversals and interlocked grain can be prone to tear out. The wood glues and finishes sufficiently. Occasional whitish grey pockets of silica can be dulling to tools
