I got a chance to use some premium flame box elder that came from a friend in Texas yesterday. It was cut to dimensions for another type of call but it wasn’t dense enough for me to use for that so I cut it into parts for this short box turkey call.
The sides and paddle (top) are book matched and I used a piece of spalted box elder for the body. Since it is a softer wood it has a sound like a poplar box call quieter and smoother than a harder wood.
Finish is natural stain and lacquer.
