Here is a duck call I made for the 2007 NWTF Convention and Sports Show. I won first place in lamination. It contains 1,117 pieces. I had to maintain a tolerance of 0.001 of an inch with the wood. Some people think I’m crazy, but I plan to use the same techniques in jewelry boxes in the future.

You can see some of the other duck calls that I’ve made here:

You don’t have to blow that thing to attract the ducks,. Any duck with taste would come closer just to get a look at it!

The mind boggles at the time and effort this took. You should sell it to your optometrist and get back some of what you’ll owe him for treating the eye strain you must have from working to such close tolerances.

I only have one word for you: magnificent!

astounding work, Ray. If you hadn’t won first place, what could have possibly beat this? Grand job

That’s a great piece & beatifully made. Here in the UK there are a lot of pieces from the early 20th century made in this way, a kind of wood mosaic. It’s known as Tunbridge ware very clever Ray

Beautifully executed! So, how many art loving ducks do you call with this one?

Wow, talk about a time consuming piece, lots of glue, cutting and gluing some more. Great work, it really turned out sharp.
