Received a small piece of wood which I was told to be from a Lilac tree. Really don’t know if such was true but it had nice grain to it and since it was so small I decided to turn a barrell for a Duck Call. It has an Echo Poly insert with a double reed. Sounds good and looks OK. I think it was a good save of a small piece of wood, however, I am still trying to figure out a finish I like for calls. On this one I soaked in Boiled Linseed Oil for several hours, later dipped in Deft Semi Gloss Wood Finish, sanded and waxed. Also experimenting with a new camera. I really need to improve my photo skills. This photo is a little better than some. Any advise on the call, finish or the photo will be appreciated.
