A Call Takes Flight

Postby Fargohunt » June 18th, 2011, 4:24 am

I am about to deliver this caller in an hour for another Father's Day Gift. Mahogany lid with a Curly Maple tail feather and Ipe inlays over a Red Cedar box chamber with "Bubble Maple" end blocks, set on an Ipe base. This call was odd during tuning and 3 other Ipe lids I built, which in my eyes all appeared to be ideal didn't sound right, so I went to a little softer wood in the Mahogany and voila!! Never stops to amaze me that wood can change so quickly from piece to piece--learning is fun. With the tail feather on top and the breast feather on the side, this call looks like it's about to take flight. Hope it rolls a mess of love-crazed gaga-eyed longbeards for the new owner. Thanks for lookin everyone.
