I had a little time to work on the lathe this weekend. I am still trying to work out a design, so each one is a little different.

Nice looking cauls, I mean calls. Did you use a kit for the innerds or make your own? I’m interested in making my own but havn’t found any plans or specs.

They look great. Nice work. I just saw the inserts for sale at Rockler and thought, “Now THAT would be a cool project.” Excited to see what you can come up with.

I buy all of my inserts from Echo calls http://www.echocalls.com/Callparts.html

With their insert all you need is a block of wood with a 5/8” hole, lathe (or a good knife), and an idea of what you want it to look like. It does not have to be wood, take a look at my duck calls made of deer antler.

If you are going to make the insert you will need a jig. I will post a picture of the one I just had made for me.
