Different types of Wood used in making Furniture
It is very difficult to determine what kind of wood the furniture is made of if as it is not labeled. Many varieties of wood could be used to manufacture furniture. Some woods have always been favoured for their beauty, durability, and workability. Like in the old times furniture Rose wood, Furniture Teak-wood, was very popular but due lack of availability and high cost it is rarely used by common man.
Before 19th century, most wooden furniture was made with woods like walnut, oak, mahogany, rosewood, fruit-woods, and wood veneers and inlays in American & European countries for manufacturing of furniture. American Colonial furniture was dependent on the availability of these woods. For this reason, pre-19th century furniture is almost always worth restoring. As these woods have become scarcer and more expensive.
Now the furniture much appreciated by the furniture lovers is hand crafted wood furniture made of Indian Sheesham wood, Indian Mango Wood, Indian Acacia wood or Jali furniture with Iron Jali.
