These are a type of miniature box call. I didn’t show the paddle you use to make the sounds just the boxes. The first 2 are Eastern Red Cedar next is Black Walnut and the last 3 pictures are Flame Box Elder that has spalting in it. These are a great little project that can save some of your scraps and turn them into a good sounding call.

They only measure 2”x4” with the box being a bit smaller so that one side sticks up to form the sound board. If you have a mortising tool you can make these in just a few minutes. I don’t have one so I use 4 pieces of wood to make each one.

Thanks for looking.

-- Tommy,

Tommy—Do you think you could post a short video showing how to use the calls so we can see how to use them, and hear them in operation? I know, I know—they sound like wild turkeys. If we’re not asking too much, could you do one on the rounded model you make too?

Thanks everyone. I will get a video done soon. Maybe today. I have another 6 of these on the bench in elm that I will finish up this morning. Fun little calls to do but I’m still learning how to tune and play them.
