The Burmese Black Wood is just about sold out, I would love to carry this beautiful wood but it is very hard to get, and I really dont know how this wood will hold up in more humid climates? This piece of wood came with a half inch of wax coating its outside. Pain in the rear removing it to. The Canary Wood is also going great and people really love the sound that comes from this wood. I am going to make an attempt to stock Canary Wood in the Shine Box line up. It burns good and looks great with a turkey image on it!! I'll get some pictures of the Canary wood with a burned image soon. I have 2 new woods coming soon to the Special Edition line up, Moon Ebony and Zircote both are amazing in color and grain. Pictures will come soon!!

The Premium Shine Boxes are made of the highest quality booked matched maple veneer. We have a beautiful Quilted Birds Eye and Jaw Dropping Angel Step Maple veneer. These Veneers are applied over a piece of solid Rock Maple Stock with the best acoustical wood glue Available! That means that the glue does not impede on sound or function just like a violin, cello, or guitar! I use canary wood for the sound board for great looks. These are available upon request and look awesome. Asking price is $25.00.. I know I spelled angel wrong on the call??! That one is half price :)
Here it is! The second Released Image "Dueling Green Heads." Two Drake Mallards positioning for their landing in a wetland back drop. Again 5 will be made and one will go to auction on Ebay.

Please feel free to leave a comment on these images!!.. Or if there's something your may be interested in contact us..

Limited Sporting Edition "The Ring Neck" is just about gone! the last one is on Ebay!! Next Image will be done soon. I have successfully tuned the Blood wood and will offer them soon. These will be a Special Edition Shine Box and will be made in very low numbers. This wood is so dense and hard it feels like stone, and wears my woodworking tools like I'm working with stone!! It looks and sounds great but it wiped out one saw blade and 2 fostner bits like they were made of rubber! not to mention my hand carving tools. I'm holding back on the Purple Heart wood to work on some new Canary, Burma Black Wood, and Kings Wood. These will also be Special Edition low number Calls. Pictures will come soon. Thanks for checking in!

The Shine Box in the picture is on Cherry and an Original style call. I do not copy other artists work; each image is a complete original.

I will have 4 of "The Ring Neck" available on my blog site the other 1 will go to auction. That means if you are interested in "The Ring Neck" call you must contact me here on the blog page. Each Limited Sporting Edition call will have the production number burnt on the bottom. The one in the Picture is 1 of 5. The asking price for the Limited Sporting Edition is $50.00 Be sure to visit us again here at Shine Box to see what's coming next!

We have secured a Very small amount of the Coveted King Wood. Once desired by the kings of European Countries to use for their Furniture and private Quarters. "Perfect for the Shine Box Line-up." These days it's highly used by woodturners for high-end pens, chess pieces and items like salt and pepper shakers. This rare wood has a Beautiful grain and color pattern as seen in the photo. The coloration can vary from a deep purple to yellowish color in the grain. I will begin working with it as soon as it arrives. Please visit again to see the finished product.
