Would anyone be willing to share some calls made from mahogany? I don't usually work with it but had a call requested from it. Do y'all leave it natural? Stain, dye, or grain fill it.just looking for insight. Thanks

I have made duck calls from mahogany. Teak oil soak and dry to seal the wood. Then finish with Tru Oil gunstock finish. Nice wood to work with!  No stain required.

Reelfoot, the original duck call. What's on your lanyard?

Agreed, a nice sanding job and a teak oil soak looks very nice
