Trough Calls
« on: January 07, 2021, 10:02:23 PM »
Hello everyone,

I’m a new member to the forum but have been enjoying reading posts for a while. I’ve been trying my hand at making box calls and scratch box calls for a couple years now with decent success and would now like to try trough calls. I’m pretty sure I have a good handle on the build but am unsure on how best to attach the slate. Is the slate only glued on each end of the trough or should there be a small lip around the edge of the trough to glue the slate to? Any advice is greatly appreciated.

Sounds dumb I guess but like anything in call making it's a guarded secret. Trial and error is the best way to learn.

I thought the intricacies on how the slate is "attached" to the call may be a closely guarded secret but I thought I'd throw the question out there anyway to see if I would get a bite. Haha!

Thank you for the links M, Yingling. They are exactly what I was looking for. Now I gotta see if I can make this chunk of wood talk turkey!
