This is another short box turkey call this time it is spalted flame box elder from here in middle Tennessee. I cut and milled the pieces from a log that is out in my yard and I dried in my solar kiln. This thing has produced blanks with amazing colors and patterns and this one didn’t disappoint.

I named it from the patterns on the book matched sides that looked like desert hills with clouds being blown over them. I used a piece of spalted box elder from the same tree for the paddle and the body is poplar.

Finish natural stain and lacquer.

Yep, another beauty. That should be set on a mantle for display, not out in the woods getting beat up!
