what wood goes well with cherry?

Postby Ruttinbull » April 10th, 2011, 5:03 pm

I am fairly new to box call building and am having some decent success. I have a number of cherry blanks and at the moment am trying to build a decent call before Friday! Curious what wood tends to go well with Cherry. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Walnut should work.

Thank you Turkeybuster.
That is what I started out to do then read a post somewhere that indicated it was tough to tune. I will proceed with the plans.

Randy, I presume you are talking about box calls...if so, I had a lot of success with Padauk lids and cherry boxes ad as well with walnut lids.  Be sure to get your grain orientation correct to get the most friction of your call.  Good luck and post some pics if you have time before the hunt.

I like cherry over cherry, curly maple and black locust for the domestics.

Thanks everyone for all the suggestions. I have a temporary setback.... busted the brass screw off in the box about an hour ago. It was my own dumb fault... so now I am chewing on what to do next.

Turkey season started today and I have the day off... but its raining and snowing mix. Good day to fool around in the garage. Perhaps Sunday I will get out.
