Custom Turkey Calls
1 Attachment(s)
I specialize in friction turkey calls. I have attached some pics so you can see my work.

Currently I have the following already made and ready for shipment:
Bloodwood, Padouk, Mahogany - 60 TYD
Quilted Maple, Cedar, and Maple with a Black Wanut trim - 50 TYD

Each call comes with a striker and the prices are to your door.

I know I am new to this site, but feel free to ask any questions or ask for some references.

A Cocobolo Call
Slate over glass, with a one piece Cocobolo striker

slicendice 01-26-2010 09:28 AM

What is the size of the calls? I'm guessing 3"? And are all of the calls slate over glass or would you happen to have some slate over slates?

They are 3.5", but I do make a 3" call as well. Currently I have a maple with black walnut trim in stock, but I can make one for you to order. Most calls can be make and shipped in 1 week, depending on my wife, kids, and work :action-smiley-099: Just kidding... almost.

But yes, you can pick from Slate, Beaded Glass, Plain Glass, Aluminum, or copper.

Here is a pic of a matching set (add 10.00 for matching striker) They just came off the lathe today and will get a finish on them shortly.

Klyph 01-29-2010 07:21 PM

I have 6 more Cocobolo calls ready for tops... I can put either a slate or beaded glass on them...

Let me know if you would like one,

Will you be at the Deer and Turkey Expo in Columbus, Ohio?

Klyph 02-07-2010 12:25 PM


I won't be in Columbus, but I will be in Erie at the Erie Sports show March 5-7.

You are the second person that has asked, I might need to look into that for next year!

Thanks for asking,


Klyph 02-13-2010 04:58 AM

Turkey season is coming! I am now making what I call a field grade call. They come in either Cherry or Walnut. They are finished the same way, and have the 3 hole design, in either beaded slate or glass, just no concave sides or bottom. If ordered here, the cost is 30 TYD. ( I eat the cost of the priority shipping, as compared to on my website)

Thanks for looking,


Klyph 02-13-2010 11:08 AM

Here is another set that is going to be shipped out to Virginia...

Klyph 02-14-2010 07:21 PM

Here is a purpleheart that came off the lathe today...

Pics don't do it justice, it is truly a great looking call!

And the best part... it is not spoken for yet. If you would like to get your hands on it, let me know.



Klyph 02-17-2010 01:09 PM

Here is a video for those that would like to hear some of my calls.

Great time at the Erie, Pa show this weekend! I am out about 2 weeks right now for calls, please let me know if you would like one as I DO have some in stock that can be shipped out right away, but once they are gone or if you want something I don't currently have made, it will take some extra time now that the season is getting close and more orders are streaming in...

Thanks again for all the orders and support!


Klyph 03-09-2010 07:41 AM

Some Calls that are ready to ship...

I currently have some Cherry and Black Walnut Field Grade pots that are ready to go... They come in either a slate or beaded glass top and have a glass sound board. They come with a standard striker (pictured) for 30.00 TYD.

I also have some black plastic pots ready to go. They also come with either a slate or beaded glass top with a glass sound board and include a standard striker for 25.00 TYD

I have 6 Box calls also ready to ship. They have poplar sides with Black Walnut accents and bottom. The top is made of cherry. They are 25.00 TYD.

Please let me know if you have any questions,

Thanks again,

Mouth Calls
Hey Everybody!

I have begun working with Daryn Maynard of Mouthy Maynard Calls to bring you some of the finest hand made mouth calls. I know that you will be happy with his product and I am basically adding them on as an option when you buy any other call for either 6.00 for one or 16.00 for three with NO COST for shipping. And the best part... he can make you any combo you want and I can have it in my hands with in a few hours.

Here is his basic line up and what I have in hand at the moment:

2 Reed Corner Cut

2 Reed Cutter

2 Reed No Cut (Great Kee Kee Call)

3 Reed Medium Rasp

3 Reed V Cut Raspy

Let me know if you have any questions,


Klyph 03-20-2010 12:09 PM

Hello Everybody!

Season is getting closer if not already here for some of you...

If there is anything I can make for you, please let me know as I am putting in extra time in the shop to make sure you have your order in your hands ASAP.

Hope you have a great season, I can't wait to see this years pics!


Klyph 03-25-2010 06:21 AM

Thanks for all the orders! We just signed a deal on both our house and the house we wanted to buy, so time will be getting short here soon. If there is anything I can make for you before the season begins, please place your order so I can make sure it is in your hands opening day.

Thanks again,

Here is a matching Tiger Maple/Black maple pot, striker, crow call and turkey tote...

Klyph 04-22-2010 06:54 PM

Some of the latest crow calls

Klyph 04-26-2010 08:26 AM

Due to an accident, I will not longer be able to make any more calls for at least another month...

I fell from a ladder onto concrete and needed a total hip replacement... any prayers would be appreciated.

Thank you,

Cliff Forbes

Thanks for the pic Rob!

Klyph 05-07-2010 09:22 AM

You can know become a fan of my Facebook page! Let me know what you think!


Klyph 05-11-2010 10:53 AM

I was working on painting our house April 25th hoping to get all of the "honey do list" things done before our turkey season kicked off the next weekend and ended up having my ladder kick out from underneath me... I feel about 12 feet (from the bottom of my feet) onto pavement.

Needless to say, it didn't turn out too well. But to be honest I am glad I only had to have my hip replaced as I am sure it could have turned out much worse.

Thank God for forums like this were I can at least read about and see pics of everyone else's success this year!

Good luck and stay safe out there,
