Here are a few pics of a few steps along the way to a laminate turkey call. I started with African sapele, quarter-sawn maple, bookmatched figured walnut and strips of black and white veneer. These pieces are glued up with Titebond III waterproof wood glue and clamped for 24 hours. After the glue dries, they are removed from clamps and sanded. The bookmatched pieces of walnut are cut from a wider block, then flipped "outwards" from how they were originally joined in the block. This produces a "mirror image" or bookmatched effect. Finally, the blanks are cut out and turned into call pots... These are part of a series of 25 numbered calls for a catalog in Illinois. I also do laminate blanks as a "1 off" kind of blank so that there is never another exactly alike. Either way, they are all cut and assembled one blank at a time. I have literally spent 2-3 hours just cutting pieces and dry-fitting, switching this piece out for that piece and making repeated changes until it just looks "right" to my eye.
