Snakewood & ABW - Fresh off the Lathe
« on: January 06, 2019, 08:20:09 AM »
Finished these two up yesterday, Snakewood and ABW, some of my favorites. Snakewood is a tricky wood to turn, slow and easy does the trick. Love a Snakewood trumpet, but ABW is old reliable, turns consistently and always sounds fantastic.

noisy box call that seems to sound like a flock of juvenile hens pecking their way through a wheat field

a real turkey would never win a calling contest. The true judge is the turkey you call in...  if you do.. you're a winner

Two fine yelpers. If anyone is wondering how they sound I'll tell you awesome. Very easy to run and full of turkey at a great price.

Turning SW always hurts my head and my heart. Both are awesome looking though Greg!
