I recently had an estate calabash, that had a damaged meershaum insert, to I rurned one out of wood.

It certainly is Mark and it smokes well too. I gave it a coat of honey before the first smoke and it is fine.

I really don't know. I'm not much good at guessing woods. It was a chunk I had in the turning shed, so took a chance with it, it smokes fine anyway.
