    future turning project in the works

    This is a future turning project that I cast today. Haven't decided If I'm going to sale it or make a good friend of mine a pot call. It's a turkey pot call blank that I cast from alumilite and buckeye burl. It's 1 1/8" thick with a diameter of 4.25".

    Well I didn't sell it so turned it. I'm about 95% finished with this one. I did find out one thing. It's hard to photograph a glossy surface! Here's a shot of the side and bottom. I haven't glued in the glass yet to finish the top. The bottom is the money shot anyways.
