I made this beech bowl for my calabash to replace the broken meerschaum. Did make one form available wood earlier on, but that has burned out now.

Nice work! Would be interested in knowing how the beech holds up. I've used Mulberry to make a pipe and it has held up very good.

I have made a few pipes out of beech and the hold up to smoking fine.
They are best left in their natural colour in my view .
