As I said before I don't like the "order" thing.. that being said, I have a buddy that has bought quite a few of my upper end calls. He kind of dropped some hints at what he wants.. and since I like the materials he was interested in, I've started putting it together. I'll let him know when I'm going to post it for sale, since it's the materials he likes. This is a Desert Ironwood burl barrel, with an elephant Ivory bead. When I get it complete it'll have a Hippo tooth ivory toneboard.

Ordered a few pieces of Desert Ironwood... this is one of 'em sitting on my little bandsaw:


I'm a bit of a lazy son of a gun... don't like the square smacking my tools so I cut it round for my lathe:


I cut a "step" into it, and already had my Ivory turned round and drilled to dimension... slide it on and glue it up:


I go ahead and cut my bead.. and remove the excess for the next call.. I store it in a baggie, Ivory will crack if not taken good care of.


Here I've turned the call... it's on a "pin" mandrel here.. I've sanded it, and put a little linseed oil on it.. makes the finish "POP". It's still a long way from being done but thought ya'll might like to see some of the progress.

Well this took a little longer than I'd planned on... working to much overtimes been getting in the way of my hobbies! LOL Well I finally got it put together. It sold before I had it all the way put together.

It's a Desert Ironwood Burl barrel, with an Elephant Ivory bead. It is followed with one of my o-ring fitted Hippo Ivory toneboards. Both pieces are carrying my CA finish inside and out, buffed and polished to a very high gloss. I hope the new owner will like it!
