    A little lathe work, plus some

    Had a gentleman order a special edition call to commerate his grandson harvesting his first turkey. The call itself is made of buckeye burl. I also put the kid's picture on the soundboard of the call. The striker is made of Oregon myrtle. The box is walnut with cypress legs, the lid is nicely spalted maple.

    Wat can I say?
    You must have some incredible reputation among your call buyers. Terrific.

    That is one heck of a keepsake, lucky kid!
