It has been a while since I last made a turkey box call and I do believe my skill has improved a bit. A friend asked me to make this as a Christmas present for her nephew. The sides of the call are Poplar and the lid and base are Uitle hardwood. The name and turkey are wood burned. I shined up a nice brass screw for the hard ware. After chalking the lid success! It kind of sounds like a turkey… this was actually my second try, my first attempt I used hard maple for the sides and all it did was squeak (so don’t use hard maple folks)

Thanks for stopping by,
Matthew Stillwell

That is a beauty. My dad use to make a goose call that was very similar. Maybe the same thing, but used for geese, we didn’t have wild turkeys around our area back in those days.

Thank you PaulDoug, That neat I did not know goose calls could be made like this. I would like to turn some duck/geese calls on the lathe one day though.
