Neil used Butternut for the box with a Red Cedar lid alot of the time. Combanations of those are good. I make my own calls and like Sumac with a Cedar lid, makes a nice soft sound. If your looking for something a little raspy and higher piched look at walnut or the harder woods. Tribute Custom Calls.

Neil used primarly soft woods, Butternut was definately one of his favorites. I've seen several Butternut Boat Paddles lidded in Cherry also. Alaskan Yellow Cedar was also a wood that he preffered butfound itdifficult to get his hands on. Both are great sounding woods. Butternut will generaly have a more mature hen sound and can be lidded with just about anthing. Here's a look at a few that I've built.

Mahogany also makes a fine call and can be lidded with just about anything.
Here are a couple of those that I've built.

Picked up a new "long box" by TPhunter. He callsithis "Burrieville Bomber", and I first heard this call in the spring woods this year by another fellow who bought one. Completely fooled my ears as to thinking a real hen was near the deeks. Here's a pic of that call.
