Beautiful woods! Can you add a recording of the call it makes?

Pretty enough to make one want to take up goose hunting—nice job.

Awesome call! Any images of the reed assembly and how the call breaks apart?

That walnut looks amazing! What would you say are your best woods for turning calls? SO far I have used Maple, Hickory, and some mahogany.

The best woods are hardwoods. Some of the very best would include osage orange, maple, walnut, ebony, rosewoods, cocobola, bloodwood, african blackwood, along with synthetics like acrylic and delrin.
Hope that helps. Sorry I don’t have a picture of the guts of the call, I shipped it off to a customer…. :)
