For you tractor lovers!

Postby kenturkey89 » April 10th, 2011, 6:54 am

This is one that I just finished up for my hunting buddy. It's bronze glass (took a while to condition) over glass with a John Deere logo on the soundboard. This is my first cherry pot and I have to say that I really enjoyed working with this wood, which I'm glad because I have literally a boatload of it to turn pots out with. My girlfriends grandfather GAVE me a 12ft board of cherry that came from a tree that was planted by his great-grandfather...that wood is absolutely beautiful and he has probably 20+ planks in the rafters of his barn that I'm entitled too! The call sounds really good and IMO plays best with a purpleheart striker. Hope you like it!

I used sandpaper to condition the glass. First with 180gr and finished with 80gr. Took a while to do but looks very clean. I bought a conditioning stone from a guy on another forum so I'm going to try it out and see how I like it!

Nice looking call. RC, if you want to "sandblast" your glass buy some 220 grit aluminum oxide, i use the grey stuff. Then just cut a template out of plexi glass to hold over the glass striking surface so you can media blast any design that you want.
