burned hedge duck call

Here's one I turned a couple nights ago. Used a turbo torch and mapp gas to get the burned fade from black to yellow. I've turned a lot of calls from hedge but this is the first time I've tried burning it...I was amazed at how the burning brings out the chatoyance in the wood.

That's gorgeous. Nice work. Burning is a nice way to add a unique touch to things.

The flame is applied with a torch just at the ends (or the areas you want to darken). Getting the fade perfect is the challenge, but it is easy enough to figure out.

That call is simply beautiful. I would have never thought you could get that effect from burning it. Great job!!!

not picking A nice job The hedge is yellow When you burn it you see what you get which is nice When i burned it in the fire place When you move it It start's to pop I call it firecracker wood It is hard I guess you know what hedge ball's are than Hedge is used in fence row's Lot's of thornes and limb's We used to have to trim it Boy don't thank that was something Again nice job

Thanks for the nice comments guys. Del, you're right....That hedge burns hot, cracks and pops in a fire and is a nightmare to cut down and cut up. I've cleared a few miles of fence row in my day! But is sure is good wood for duck calls and it turns like a dream.
