The top call is all cherry. The body and sides are from wood from New York while the paddle is from wood here in Tennessee. The bottom call has a spalted maple body, cherry sides and top with a spalted maple inlay in the top.

Finish is natural stain and lacquer.

Hi Gerardo. It is used by moving the paddle (top) across the sides. You apply chalk to the bottom of the paddle to add friction. With some practice you can make all kinds of turkey sounds with a box call. Different woods and how they are built changes the sound.

What is it used? Call turkeys for catch? There are wild turkeys there? I’ve never heard anything like that. Interesting. Thanks for explaining.

Great looking turkey call. I’m guessing you have a way to use a rubber band to hold the front together loosely and be able to shake it for a gobble.

Gerardo you’re welcome, it gets the males to come close enough to shoot them.

HillbillyShooter, this isn’t a gobble call it is for hen sounds. But yes you could attach a rubber band to the paddle and body to make a gobble if it was tuned that way.

Great looking calls. You need to make a video for those that never heard a turkey call.

I used to use a slate call. My son uses a box call and my cousin makes then also.
