I got some Myrtle in a tade so i made a duck call tube. It needs some final sanding but turned out nice the pictures dow show the pearlecent swirls.
But i am not sure what type of wood i should use on the top?
More Myrlte ?
Dark walnut?
Spalted stuff like Hack Berry?
Any suggestions?

So i decided Myrtle..

The Hackberry would be my choice.

Hey Winters98! glad to see you were able to use the myrtle I sent you! you’re right the pics don’t do the wood justice, the silky swirling of it is absolutely gorgeous first hand! I think I would go with myrtle or walnut, the wood speaks for itself, no need to try to top it with the spalted hackberry and take away from the beauty of the myrtle. just my opinion, FWIW
