More short box turkey calls. The first 5 are Eastern Red Cedar and the last two are Mineral Stained Poplar. I took one shot with different light so you could see some of the color and detail in that poplar regular lighting blew the colors out.

Thanks. I use rattle can lacquer on these. I build a lot of them and it is fast. One thing I learned the hard way is no wipe on poly or spray on poly chances are it won’t dry. I think it is reacting to the resins in the wood. Whatever it is it is a tossup as to whether it is going to dry or not.

If I am doing a regular box, bowl or maybe a striker out of cedar I use Johnson’s Paste Wax up to 15 coats hand rubbed it a shine.

Can you send me plans on how to make this? [email protected] if you can, can you put turkey call in the subject line. Thank you.
