John nice looking call. I personally don't care for the plastic tube that comes with the kits, so i don't use them on mine. Like the all wood calls better.
I agree Stephen. I ordered a couple of the kits with the tubes so I will have them around. The next ones I plan on making all wood. A question for you. Do you turn yours on a mandrel? How do you drill out the tube? I guess that's a couple of questions.
Great looking call. I'm looking forward to seeing what you come up with in an all wood call.
Looks good to me. Like the rest, I'd like to see it all wood. Can't wait to see that! Great work!
Thanks Stephen, I think I'll start drilling them on the lathe. Both times I've used the DP I've gotten some run out. I checked to see is the bit was perpendicular to the table and it is. It's probably something I'm doing. On the two I've posted I drilled about half way on the lathe reversed the blank and drilled the other way and they've met both times. I don't have enough travel on my tail stock to drill all the way in one pass.
Here's number two. This one is spalted maple and it's 6 inches long.
Thanks to you too Ted.
Great addition to your strikers John! How do they work?

John, both of those look great. Those should come in handy.
It's not what you achieve in life...It's what you overcome!
I've made several of those. Like others I don't use the plastic tube. I have drilled on lathe and dp. BTW, the grunt works. I once killed a buck that walked up within 15 feet of me while I was using the call.
