    spalted maple pot call

    A spalted maple pot call in progress. It has some curl too, but for some reason it doesn't show up in the picture. The top will be slate with a glass soundboard. I went a little thinner on the bottom than I had intended. I'll call it a new design!

    Well I got it finished.

    Looking good so far, John. I'll bet the curl pops a bit more when you get some oil finish on that maple.

    [Edit to add....]

    Oh yeah, the finish shows off the curl now.

    Very nice John. Maybe that thin bottom will give you a different sound.

    Ted,

    My bottom has been thin all of my life (I weigh 114 pounds) but it has not helped my sound one bit.

    Enjoy,

    JimB

    I really hate to mention this. I cannot remember what is a Pot Caller?

    Jim, your sound doesn't really need the help. You don't sound half bad for a skinny guy. (From one [semi] skinny guy to another.)

    A Pot Caller is a type of turkey call. The more modern and urban turkeys have embraced newer digital technologies like cell phones and WiFi, but the more rural turkeys (like those in Tennessee) only respond to analog calls like a pot caller.
