The natural beauty of Indian Sheesham wood shows in this solid wood, hand-crafted stool. Experience piece-of-mind knowing that this piece is made with "green" materials. Wood characteristics include: mineral deposits, irregular grain patterns, unusual knots, seasonal cracks, and splitting. Any of these may occur with changes in humidity and other severe climate conditions and are inherent in the product. Great for a casual kitchen counter or a swanky basement bar.
