CUSTOM DUCK CALLS

THE TIMBERS

Scroll down for a few photo samples of my custom duck calls. They are individually lathe turned from Australian grown timbers. I have some species of timber that are available all the time, and others are available periodically. Please check with me on availability when you order.

The 'Classic' model has a full polycarbonate insert, where as the 'Classic Premium' has a turned timber exhaust with a polycarbonate tone board. 'Classic Premium' calls are priced at $125.

The various species of timber I use include:

THE FINISHES

Two finishes are available for the Poddy Bay 'Classic' and 'Classic Premium' Custom Calls.

LOW SHEEN OILED FINISH - This is now my standard finish on calls and the finish I recommend for most timbers. The call is dipped and then finished with multiple coats of Boiled Linseed Oil. This finish leaves the grain of the timber exposed and gives warm low sheen. The call is then finished with multiple coats of a shellac and wax friction polish. The oiled call doesn't show knocks and scrapes, but should be regularly oiled to protect the timber from the elements. The brass band is not coated and will dull with usage, but can be brought back to a shine with a polish of Brasso or similar metal polish.

HIGH GLOSS LACQUER FINISH - The call is lacquer dipped to seal the bore, then finished with 4 sprayed coats of industrial quality pre-catalysed lacquer. This affords an attractive high gloss sheen that is recommended for those who aren't too hard on their calls or for calls that are to be presented as gifts. In hard usage the lacquer will chip, but can be restored to it's original finish with a light sanding and a spray can of c
