    Hello there. I have been searching and searching for a guide to help me understand how to put a flame look on calls, and I finally found your pics you had posted some time ago. My gosh, those calls look absolutely awesome. The fade is spectacular and seems to be a feat for many. I was wondering if you would be willing to share a little more specific information on how you did this. For example; did you lift the flame away when you were fading? Any info would be awesome.

    Thanks

    Sometime ago you showed some inlay material on your duck or turkey calls. It was not wood it was I think colored chips set in epoxy. Just curious as to where you purchased the material. I would like to dress up some of my turning work.

    Rocketdriver, I used a couple coats of teak oil after sanding to 800 grit. I let it dry for a couple weeks, then used three or four coats of Minwax wipe-on polyurethane. I wasn't going for a glassy finish on my project, so the wipe-on poly affords some protection for the wood without building up a thick gloss. Hope this helps!

    I was reading your experience with African Mahogany (Khaya) and wanted to know exactly how you finished that beautiful piece for the headboard, I take it? I'm working with some uncooperative Khaya and don't know what finishes work best. Thanks.

    I am a new member and read you post on the african mahogany bed. I am just finishing an african mahogany bed and now need to apply finish. I am beginning to panic. The post on the bed do not have the same grain pattern and I am thinking it may not be african mahogany. I did some samples and the posts are not as red or grained as the rest of the bed, so the do not appear to be red in color. Do you have any suggestions. This is my first big furniture project.

    Just Bought a Stanley Bailey Plane off of thekctermite (Aaron) and am more than pleased with it's condition (NEW) and the speed at which it was shipped. Would deal with him again without hesitation. Thanks Aaron!
