So, I've been intending to post call pics for a while.  Finally getting around to it.  I'll make several posts to include pics of recent calls.  Critiques, comments, and questions are more than welcome!

Thanks, guys.

J&D, these were my first, and only, calls to do the waxed thread on.  I'm planning on doing a few more once I get past my current backlog of orders.  For me, the trick is in the tying off the ends.  I don't want a knot to show.  So, I'm trying some techniques used by the pool cue industry.  It takes practice but allows for the thread to be secured by pulling the loose ends back under the wrapping.
