    Prefer to buy in person

    I build award winning custom turkey calls and ordered this wood at a customer's request. The wood was solid, but had no character in the grain. It was very functional, but not so appealing to the eye. I much prefer selecting my own wood in person. Customer was pleased with the sound and lines on the turning of the piece, but commented that the grain of the wood appeared quite bland.
