    Gourd Calabash 1907 modification

    A modification that i have made some years ago that's why the photos and the video aren't so good. I bought a gourd calabash bowl year 1907 and i have done some modifications plus new stem, new tenon, new meerschaum insert.
    He came to me like this:




    I worked hard in many sectors





    and now looks like this:

    Good job. I've never smoked one of those and always wondered what they were like.
    One day you will just be a memory for some people, do your best to make it a good one.

    Nice one, Sid! I like that rubber gasket. It should last longer than a cork replacement.
