Hey Stoner - I finally was able to get a hour or so to work in the wood shop and did some turning. I've looked on line for specifics on the sounding board for a slate call. It is to my understanding that the material may be formica, slate, wood, or glass. Is there a specifc diameter or thickness?
The thickness is going to be different depending on the material you are using for the soundboard. The diameter should be about 1/8" shy of touching the walls of your call. The most important facto is the distance from your top surface (slate, glass, etc.) to the soundboard. Call makers may have different opinions, my calls have about 1/8 space. I have done so many calls, I do not measure, I can look at it after I lay the soundboard on the pedestial while it is still on the lathe and tell if I have it right. I will post another hint or suggestion that will help you when gluing your soundboards to your pedestial, it will make it alot easier. I will have to find the photos.
