    Morning Sun Turkey calls, strikers

    Working on getting strikers made.
    Burzilian Rosewoood striker's

    These are 8 3/4" hand turned with 100% tung oil and rubbed.
    I dream a lot. I do more painting when I'm not painting. It's in the subconscious.

    You don't waste any wood on the ends do you

    The monkey pod is pretty wood for sure.

    Finished up a load of calls. Maple burl, spalted, birdseye and curly. These will be finished with slate over crystal or crystal over copper.

    Those are great Dave. That spalt is outstanding! The ones with the contrasting strips look really good too. Just curious, how do you lay out the hole pattern on the bottom? When I do mine I have a 4 inch disk of plywood with finish nails left proud with the heads cut off. I mash it against the blank and it puts marks for drilling locations. I have two, one with an 8 hole pattern and one with 6.
