The materials Rob uses in his laminations includes acrylic, wood and metal inlays, which turn out amazing and makes a beautiful looking call. This months call of the month is Rob's laminated entry for the 2017 CCAA Fancy Call Contest, where he won 1st Place in the Amateur Laminated Division. Rob continues to push the limits and creativity in his laminated segments, with each call that he makes. Job well done Rob and congratulations on being the January call of the month!
