A few more calls getting ready for new homes. First is 5 3” tube calls L-R Spalted maple, 2 Osage, Dogwood, Maple Burl. The pot calls are both maple but from different parts of the country. 3 1/2” will be aluminum over glass and the 3” probably slate over glass.

Finish is natural stain and lacquer.

I’m not familiar with the tube calls. can you give us some more info?
also where to you get your slate and glass for the pot calls?
I have made several box calls but would like to try some other styles.

Thanks guys. David these are turkey calls the tube calls use a piece of latex to make the sounds the pot calls use a playing surface that is rubbed with a striker to make the sounds.

Tube calls work like a diaphragm mouth call but you blow against the latex instead of putting it in your mouth. They use a 2 tier internal chamber to create back pressure to make them run easier.

Bake I get my surfaces and sound boards from Brookside Game Calls they have everything you need there except the glue. Only use GOOP I like the blue tube but the silver will work.

Beautiful pieces! Like the variety of pretty woods used and the finish really made the grains pop. Great job!
