Great Sounding Bones Made from Salvaged Wood
"We've started making bones out of old pieces of oak flooring," the folks at Danforth Bones tell me. "They're beautiful, though the color and grain will not necessarily match in each pair since we're using salvaged wood." As you can see from the pictures, these bones have lots of character - and maybe even a worm-hole or two!

Oak is a symbol of strength and endurance and the trees are very sparse, which pretty much sums us bone players up.

The mighty oak is the national tree of England, Estonia, France, Germany, Lithuania, Poland, the United States and Wales. In Celtic mythology, oak trees are a gateway between worlds. And just about every bone player as well as the folks who love them can relate to this old proverb which tells us, "Every majestic oak tree was once a nut who stood his ground."

Oak is a relatively hard wood with a distinct grain pattern and aroma that fine woodworkers recognize instantly. The dense substance produces a somewhat medium-low tone, and its heavy weight offers ample heft to drive any lively tune.

Historically, oak holds a reputation as the preferred material for barns, sea chests and - some folks might view this with a nod towards bone players...hanging trees.
