Dear Balkar ji:
New to my eyes, though my ears had heard about this...

My Dad's wood furniture polish guy had talked of some tree whose
leaves were used by his father for the final poilsh on small
delicate ornamental pieces...

I /we thought he was shooting the breeze and pulling our legs
that day many years ago... he said it was called Sheora...
he talked of some other leaves that were also quite rough like
fine sandpaper... I wish I had written down the list...
such memories are priceless... little did I know..
It had taken me awhile to track down that bengali name,
and then discovered he was not being funny, he was in the earnest...
I had found it in Tinkodi Ghosh’s Bonaushadhi book ..


I had forgotten that episode..

Untill today, I googled your tree name ..
and the story floated up from deep recesses of the memory bank...

MY Question: did you get to feel the surface of the leaves?
is it really rough enough to be used as polishing material?

Yes Usha Ji Surface was little rough but i think not enough to be used as polishing material. I will also try to examine in my next visit there soon.

Dear Dr Balkar Singh,

In Indonesia there are a lot of Streblus asper but I have never seen
the flowers and fruits. The leaves are not rough enough to polish the
hard wood, for soft wood like Hibiscus tiliaceus is enough. I think
the strongest for polishing wood is Ficus ampelas. Thank you for
uploading the pictures.

Hello,

I doubt if the tree in picture is Streblus asper as the Streblus that
i have seen growing around Mumbai are quite dull green and very rough
in appearance. I might, however be wrong

I have heard of leaves of Nyctanthes arbor-tristis being used for
rubbing down wood to get a fine finish. The leaves of this plant are
indeed quite rough.
Cheers,
Mohan
