Quick Hello

Just a quick Hello to everyone. Been reading through the threads here and really like what I see. Mainly turn game calls but do some flat work too. On another forum but there if you don't turn bowls or hollow forms they rarely respond looks like that isn't the case here.

I will try to post a few pics soon would post my site link but can't yet. Sorry.

Welcome. Looking forward to seeing some of your work.

That bowl was perfect right up until that last cut...

Nah, it takes all kinds here and if you made it from wood, this is the right forum. If you turned it on a lathe, this is the right forum. I like seeing other stuff besides bowls and pens and the normal stuff.

Thanks, turning pens bores me to tears and I don't own all the cool chucks for bowls or I would be turning them. The calls I have a market for plus I enjoy them. Still a lot to learn on different ones but that is what it is all about. When I stop learning I will find something else to do.

Did get out this morning and split wood for my solar kiln I just built. Loading it up with box elder and spalted elm.

Welcome to the site. Since coming to this forum i have tried, even succeed on a few, new items on my lathes. Calls, pens, lamps, vases, bowls, bottle stoppers and more. Great place for ideas and advice.

Bowls don't take a lot of accessories really. A chuck, most any will do. I turn between centers, make a tenon to stick in the chuck, flip it and bowl. Finishing the foot is much easier with a cole jaw but you can get around it. I had hell with mine today for some reason.

Welcome. What kind of calls do you make? I keep wanting to make some custom duck calls but I think I'm a little intimidated.

I make duck, goose, deer, predator, hawk, squirrel, owl and several kinds of turkey calls.

Most are easier than you might think and to start I would suggest getting pre made inserts and simply turning the barrels. If you do a search for duck or goose call inserts you will see many places that sell them. Joe Shoop up at Brookside Game calls can fix you up with anything you need. He carries Echo inserts which are what I use.
