    Darrel, a buddy who makes turkey calls & used to make duck & goose calls has me makin duck calls for him. I made one using Bottle Brush burl & green resin.
    He thinks it's the nicest duck call he's ever seen & is keeping it for himself. He's asked me to make a matching goose call & this is what I made, which is much prettier than the duck call.

    It's the nicest one I've ever seen!!! It has a duck call mouth piece & he
    's going to get or make a goose call mouth piece.

    Lee, the first picture between your forefinger and middle finger looks a lot like Cholla bark. Do you think you would like to try your hand at casting some Cholla bark? I just peeled off a bunch, and I know where there is a whole lot more...... Just today, I stumbled upon a dropped Saguaro limb. The skin was pretty thick, hard and looked like it could also be used for a casting. Also, in that mess was about 3-4 boots. They weren't much use as a boot, but the casing if broken up and packed into a mold, could possibly yield a decent casting......... If interested, I can gather up some of it and send it for postage. ............. Jerry (in Tucson)

    No.
    I drilled & turned the shape, sanded with 180 grit then saturated wood with thin c/a glue.
