Ebony was the wood of choice for Mister Bones during the minstrel era. It is one of the world's hardest woods. Ebony is a dense resonant wood that holds a reputation among woodcrafters as a saw buster.

In 1897 you could buy a set of four 7" ebony bones for thirty-five cents from the Sears, Roebuck & Co. catalog. Living history performers who do Minstrel era and Civil War gigs should choose ebony minstrel-style bones for the historically accurate design. You will appreciate the sharp powerful tone that cuts through the clamor of festival crowds - and so will those curious onlookers!
