This is my first attempt at building a box type turkey call.
I was inspired by the calls that Tommy (ghost5) had been posting.
The body is cherry and the top and bottom are walnut.
It sounds pretty good although the sides could be thinner, I think I would get more volume out of it.
I may cut some grooves or thin the sides up.
Finish is 2 coats of wipe on poly.

Good looking short box. If you thin the sides you don’t get more volume you get a lower tone. Volume comes more from pressure on your paddle and a lot of chalk helps. Thanks for the plug, too. ;-)

Looks good. My guess is that since Tommy posted his there’s been a lot of these attempted.
