    Is this curly enough????

    Actually got this one turned this afternoon. Had a guy send me this wood a few years ago, made a beautiful box call out of it with a birdseye maple paddle and gave that to a really good friend who has taken a few birds with it. The guy I got the wood from said they were making pallets out of this, couldnt believe it!!!!!! Some of the most amazing curl I have ever seen in a piece of cherry. The ferule is elk antler and the mouthpiece is buffalo horn.

    Wow, that's an amazing piece of cherry. Very nice work. Is this a call or a chanter for bagpipe players?

    I have no idea what that gizmo is, but that is one beautiful chunk of cherry!
    Nice job on bringing the curl out.

    Never saw a piece of cherry like that. Would make a great barber pole!!
    Great piece, you did that wood proud!
