Stabilized Cypress Call
« on: January 08, 2018, 02:57:18 PM »
I've been turning a few duck call barrels. Using Echo inserts for voice.  This is one I did for a friend who bought it for his brother as a christmas gift.  My first attempt at laser engraving on the barrel.  It is made from cypress that has been stabilized with Cactus Juice.

Nice call!  What'd machine did you use to engrave it?

I bought a 400mm by 600mm 60 watt machine with a rotary attachment from Automation Technologies.  Pretty versitile machine.

Nice shape to that barrel.
Lots of us started with an Echo insert.  Next will be to make your own inserts.

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