Alum plays on anything but slate, it eats up slate. You don't want the tip to rough just sandpaper it.

I've never seen a striker made of solid wing bones, I've seen quite a few that used a wing bone for the peg and wood for the top. The biggest problem with using bone for the pegs is that you need a faily thick bone to get it to carry any vibration, otherwise it's dead sounding because bone is real porus and dosn't carry sound very good if it has any length to it.
