Here are a few pictures of the first 3 calls I ever made. D Hoosh's call is the 5th and last one I made. Hope you enjoy the pic's cause I sure had fun making the calls. Am I call maker...I guess. I can make calls, but I have plenty going on in my life now that I don't have time to make many of them. I suspect I will continue to make a few here and there, but until I retire, it will never be a business--already have a day job and it isn't about the $--even the real call makers will tell you that.
The first 2 pics are all 3 shown together, the 3rd pic is of the 1st call I made, a cherry box, walnut base and padauk paddle with curly maple carved feather accent.
Thank you for say this and I can tell you that is absolutely the truth. I can't remember that last time I had as much joy and fun making something from wood, I make a whole lot of stuff, mostly furniture in my spare time, but making calls seems to be something all together different. I guess because they talk back to me and I don't mind[:D]
You're very welcome. Those calls are very beautiful. The little feathers added to it adds a whole lot of character to each call. Truly impressive indeed. I wish I was a skilled as you and Larry to make such things.
