Krishna’s currently manufactures a large range of wooden furniture by Indian hard wood known as Sheesham, Maple, Oak, Teak and Mango.
Sheesham is our mostly used wood, usually of the species ( Dalbergia sissoo ), occurs throughout the sub-Himalayan region, from the Indus to Assam, usually at elevations of up to 2950 feet (900 m), but sometimes at 4900 feet (1500 m).
It often grows in mixed stands on new alluvial lands or low banks of river. The wood is described as golden brown to deep brown in colour, with darker streaks that give the wood an attractive appearance. The wood is hard, with a uniform and medium coarse texture. Natural resistance to decay is very high, and borers and ants rarely attack the hardwood. Carving properties are very good, and it is considered to be one of two most popular carving and engraving woods in India. Sheesham is a good turnery wood that peels exceptionally well to produce highly decorative veneers which glue and dry without difficulty.
