I learned a little from my first box call, and developed this one after. I cut four 1/8” wide grooves 1/16” deep down each side to improve sound. I also milled one side just a tad thinner to make each side produce a different sound. It has walnut end blocks, and is a 7” call. The other one I made was 6”. Its a little late to call a big tom tonight…so we will give it a try tomorrow and tune it from there. These things are so much fun to make. Once I get a good design down that produces a great call, I want to work on some custom inlays to pretty them up a little. Lots of people hunt turkey here, and after I posted a few pics on facebook, many of my friends have expressed interest. Ive seen some of these that look so good I wouldn’t take them out in the woods.

Very nice work. I would love to be able to make a box call. I’ve got a lot of turkey huntin’ friends that would appreciate it.

Good job. The more you make the easier and faster it gets. I do lamination and inlays on mine and it does make them look good. Poplar has a good sound I just finished up 5 poplar calls and really like how they tuned.

Hey ghost, are your calls hollowed out?
