Thanks, the band is the wood inlay material, that you can buy at the woodstores.
I steam a short piece of it, to where I can bend it, and then thick-superglue it into a groove. put some thin CA over that. let it dry, and turn.
Here is tonight's efforts, about 2-1/2 hours to do.
The inside is 90% drilled out on the lathe, with a progression of Drill Bits.
Then Scrape what I can reach. I need a longer scraper, and I think I need one of those 3-wheel stabilizers.
The Call blank is drilled on end end about 2" deep and a 3/4 dowel is glued in. Then into a 3 jaw chuck.
the 3/4" dowel also serves as what I drill out on the drill press, to insert the 3/4" delrin toneboard.
I'll have a "center-nub" when I saw it off the lathe with a coping saw, while turning at low speed.
It is a "Howler". Mimics a Coyotes howl and barks.
fun stuff !!
The "inlay" on this is Dremel-ground Deer Antler - to dust, and some of the same with red food coloring added, then dried. and some dark sawdust. Superglued into a dremeled groove.
