OneryOlMofo357 contacted me several weeks ago about making him a 4 call set. He wanted a complete set, a Cottontail call, a Jackrabbit call, an open reed distress call and a howler. He also wanted the calls to be a matching set. He, at first, wanted the set to made from Colorwood, using a color of one that I have posted in the past. When we found out that the wood was not available, as it was a special order color, he decided to go with Dymondwood. I gave him a color chart and he selected a Dymondwood color called Raspberry Twist. With that I placed the order for the wood and waited. Well, on Nov 7 the wood finally comes in. That's when my work began. I cut pieces, drilled them, turned them, sanded them, and buffed them. They came out looking great. All four calls, from the same stick of wood, all the same color, just slightly different shapes. Let me explain the shapes. For the howler, it is the largest, naturally, giving it the ability to reach out. Then there is the open reed distress. A bit smaller and a different shape. The reason is, at night he can tell the difference between the two just by feel. Then there are the two closed reed calls, one for a Cottontail and one for a Jack. Again different shapes, again for the same reason. To tell the difference without looking. But which is which? Naturally, the fatter, or larger of the two would be for the Jack, while the smaller, more diminutive shape is for the Cottontail. I think the set really came out looking great and he is very pleased. It will be shipped out tomorrow.Oh yea, what about that lanyard? He wanted a lanyard to tie the calls all together. So he can just grab it and head out the door. Well, I had a great lanyard on hand. I didn't make it, it was made by Jeff Maidens, who frequents the PM boards. But it is a good one, for sure. Well enough yapping, here are some pictures of the calls.

Beautiful, as usual! I think the dymondwood is an excellent choice. The calls that Braz made for me out of dymondwood are not only gorgeous but they are proving to be durable as well (along with the red palm). :smiley-innocent-halo-yellow:

Glad you like them and it was fun making them. I love making custom calls. More fun then just turning, because I know someone else has some input into what I am turning and I know they are going to enjoyed.

No, not a word. I am tired of bothering him so if it doesn't show I am just going to let it go. Maybe one day I will get two surprise packages! I think John's Post Master has a relative in the USPS down here in my neck of the woods.
