    I have some friends from my woodturning club coming over this afternoon for a mini-demo on how to turn duck calls. Both are very accomplished turners. I'm flattered they asked. But, I'm afraid they will be let down when they see how simple the process is. I'm going to tell them, it is something like the way you make a coonskin cap. Step #1) First, you kill a coon.
    Calls: Step #1) First, you get a hunk of tree.

    ok heres what i did today tried my hand at glueing up a veneered panel , not bad but not great either

    guess i better go get some real veneer tape ......but i do like the birdseye maple panel size is about 28" square. i think i did a boo-boo though , i should've used a thinner piece of MDF so i could sandwhich it in 3/4 stock around the edges ..... oh well i will figure out something .
    thanks for looking .

    It's a tool incubator...there's a lot of pre-mature tools in the world that entered in the form of iron, which grew up into steel, which in turn needs to be nurtured into life as a tool.

    Funny, funny. Enuf clues 'refractory', 'forge', I figgered out it's a lazy man's kiln or sumptin' for heating arn for pounding on. Lotsa folks around here just use coal in a pan thing with a bellows for their arn poundin'.

    Nice job!
