so around christmas i bought myself a new wood lathe with the intention of learning to make my own hand calls. it took me a while to find reeds up here in canuck land but i managed to source a few JC custom reeds and have been playing around.
im still working on trying to get the right final finish on my calls but im enjoying the process!
here is a few of them so far. woods are either chunks of old shotgun stocks or some hardwood handrail that was given to me. the acrylic mini call was my attempt at recovering after a mistake on my part resulting in a chunk of my almost finished call being broken and shot across the shop.
any tips tricks and or criticism are welcomed!

Looks to me like you are off to a good start. Good luck to you. I hope one of the experienced call makers chips in here.

Thanks! I'd love to one day sell a few but there's still minor imperfections that I need to fix first. I threw a reed in it and it sounds awesome! It's going on my personal lanyard.
