Other Minstrel Style Woods

Minstrel-style bones measure around 1" wide, by 3/8" thick, by 7" long. They are characterized by oval ends, and curve at the standard 28 degree arc.

Ebony was the wood of choice for Mister Bones on the professional minstrel stage. Rosewood was prominent too. You could buy a set of four 7" ebony bones for thirty-five cents in the 1897 Sears, Roebuck & Co. catalog. Rosewood cost just twenty. But item "No 7789. Bones, hardwood," would set you back only twelve cents.

This ain't the Sears Catalog. But below is a selection of minstrel-style bones in more hardwoods than you are likely to find most any place else...
