    squirrel call

    A friend of mine's son asked me if I could make him a squirrel call. Here it is in walnut and it's the first one I've ever made.

    Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you're a mile away and you have their shoes.

    The way it works is an insert with a reed is inside the acorn and the bellows pushes air across making the squirrel sound.
