Hot Off the Burner!!



These 2 close ups are called "Head Shot." and "I see you!" The head shot image is a variation of the close up call entered in the 2011 NWTF Minnesota call making championships. The competition call featured a colored head and colored tail fan in the background. I can add color to almost all of my Wood burned calls if the image is not to small. I'm working on several high lighted images right now and will get them posted soon.

New Wood to the Special Edition





My shipment of exotics came in on Friday and the small board of African Movingui was in the box!! and it was figured with a curly wavy grain. It was very expensive to get this wood and to get a figured piece is sweet! I hope it was worth the price? I had to burn an image on it to see how the colwood super pro 2 handled it. It took an image nicely all 3 of them. If you want a piece of this Yellow wood get in touch with me fast these wont last long! In the box was also a beautiful slab of Magnolia!

Good luck Rush Creek Long Beards & Straight River Strutters



Good luck to the Rush Creek Long Beards and Straight River Strutters on your NWTF Banquets coming up this weekend. I burned these 2 Shine Box Calls for each Chapter to be auctioned off this weekend. I hope they serve your chapters well.

Shadow Oak




New Shine Box! This call was named the Shadow Oak due to its beautiful figured grain that seemed to grow like a shadow as you turned the call to admire its looks. I added a top plate of Gabon Ebony to make the figured grain appear darker in color. It worked! This is the first Oak call I've made and I really love the natural raspy sound. gonna be a new favorite. I made 10 of these Shadow Oak calls. Contact me if interested or leave a comment.

Blue Wood Series "Ice Cube"





The "Ice Cube" is one of our old designs brought back to life and given a blue top. It always sounded good but with modifications and a maple core & striker sounds even better. It will cool even the hottest gobbler!

Blue Wood Series "All American"





This is a new Shine Box Call design featuring a bottom of natural RED padauk a Solid White core of Figured Maple and a top of Blue Buckeye Burl. RED, WHITE and Blue make it the All American Turkey Call. A blue Buckeye striker comes with it and the Shine Box usual. We made 10 of these calls and hope you enjoy the sweet tones they produce. We can tune this one to a low rasp or high pitch young hen if desired.

Blue Wood Series Shine Boxes

We brought back the popular blue wood series of Shine Box Calls. We made a few of these about 3 years ago and couldn't get the blue wood fast enough to keep up with demand, so we stopped making it. After some new improvements and new designs we are making them again. Our Blue Wood is stabilized blue dyed buckeye burl. The Buckeye has amazing swirling grain and shine when finished.
Through the process of stabilization the wood is impregnated with blued dyed acrylic to make the wood hard enough for wood turners to make pens and small wooden pieces. This acrylic acts similar to the surface on a pot calls, and when scored bites the striker surface hard making extremely crisp popping clucks & the softest purs and putts.
