    Ok, so here’s the deal I am trying to use one hobby to get the funds for another. I have access to a lot of picture cedar and I have made a few different game calls. My wife would kill me if I went and bought a pcp so I’ve got to raise some funds

    if some one wants a game call turned then P.M me and I will let you know what it will cost. 
    As long as you have been a member here longer than a two months and have at least 20 posts or replies I will make the call and send it to you first then you send payment. 

    If if you decide you don’t like it then all I ask is you pay the shipping back to me.
    Here is a you tube video of a Turkey pot call I made for myself it is a bit beat up because I carry it in the truck with me to practice with.

    Both the striker and the pot are cedar the plate is aluminum 

    As long as it is a Pot or Reed call I can make it this means
    Rabbit distress
    Deer 
    Duck
    Crow
    Wood Pecker
    Owl
    Squirrel
    and more 
    If you want an exotic wood then the price will be higher as I will need to by the blanks to turn
    I also turn pens if you have some antlers you want turned to pens I can do it 
    And of course I Turn bowls if you need to Ahhh buy the other half a pretty gift after getting your toy let me know I can send you some pics of my work

    All proceeds go to Willie’s pcp air gun fund. LOL

    “danann”How much would a crow call be

    
$10for cedar has a duck billed tone reed that allows you to apply pressure and change the tone up and down.

    The duck call interests me are they single or double reed calls?  Also how much are they?  One more thing how much extra would you expect it to be if it was made out of some exotic hardwood?  Now I need to start using this forum more I am so used to another airgun forum I hardly post here I need to get my post count up so I can by one.

    You can buy them even with low post, I only offered to send them to members with higher post before payment because I am new here myself.

    I turn these calls per ordered so the calls could be either double or single and for the most part I can use just about any kind of wood. 

    Keep in mind different woods actually will change the tone slightly, 
    one other thing to note while I will trim the reed slightly I will leave it a little long, this is because you will need to tune the call yourself, simply because the only way to tune a call is to blow in it and adjust.

    I will be going to Dallas this weekend to get material to make some calls to post and show my work.
    but they will be what you would call displays because I will use them

    Sorry for the delay, here is a short vid of a deer call I made this weekend

    A call like this one with Viga orange will cost 18 dollars (thats $8.00 labor and rest in materials)
    It is a hard wood to work with and is a bit pricy but is a show stopper, when polished right it has a deep glassy look. This was my first time working with it and I cracked it during polishing because i got it to hot, it happens all part of the game.
    I like cutting thinner large sound chambers because it makes for better sound quality. It takes very little air and since the reed is in a bigger chamber it doesn’t vapor lock as easy from the moisture in your breath (my own theory)

    Ok, had some stuff to do before I go back out on the road and was able to turn another call this is a Double Reed Duck Call
    I do not hunt duck and to be honest have no clue how to properly use a call, sorry if I didn’t cut n Chuck the right way

    Hey thanks for the video on the duck call I was wondering if it was possible to get a price on one if I wanted it made out of cocobolo wood?

    Ok, So I will make a deal for my fellow AirGun Nation folks,

    I DON’T always buy my material from the same place but instead look for the best deals (not cheapest but balanced on quality) game calls a fairly uniform on the process and materials that is needed. To simplify things here is what I will do,
    For Reed Based calls I will charge 10.00 labor plus materials
    For Pot Calls I will charge 15.00 labor plus materials
    Materials are the Wood and the Guts of the call, I will take care of the polish.
    The size for a proper blank is 1-1/2×1-1/2×6 that leaves me 1 inch waste on the length
    I have been asked if I would be willing to turn wood that a person has, the answer is yes,,,,,but please be aware that green wood or uncured wood may crack as it dries so if you go out and cut a limb off a black walnut tree in your back yard it isn’t going to work most likely.

    Ok so I found some King Cocobolo that is 1.5 x 1.5 x 6 for 6 dollars from http://www.diamondtropicalhardwoods.com/product/cocobolo-turning-squares Plus 10 dollars labor.  I don’t know the prices on the “GUTS”  for a duck call so if you could give me and estimate of how much you think that would be that would be great.  One more thing if I want that wood should I have you order it or me order it and have it sent directly to you?

    Sorry for the late reply
    Go to woodturnerscatalog.com
    Most of the game calls I use and the wood blanks I use are there, again they may not be the cheapest but the are high quality. The issue with many blanks is that if they are not cured properly they will crack inside this is called checking,
    It will make the block almost useless.

    By the way Echo duck and goose calls are used all over by some of the top call champions
    As I said most calls take about 6″ long blank, if you wanted two calls i will get if possible a 12″ blank and two calls this will save you money,

    Ok so this is what I would like and want you to reply what it is going to cost me exactly.  I looked at the website and I want cocobolo wood with a echo BOURBON colored double reed duck call.  Thanks

    PS. Theres a video on there website and it says that all duck calls are pre tuned so there will be no tuning required.

    Hey how much would it be for either a squirrel or coyote call? I have a fawn/deer call so I’m pretty sure a coyote would come with that kind of call.
