I made this after a mistake on the lathe.
It was my first attempt at an extension.

Nice work with a nice block of briar. You use a bowl coating. Is it "water glass" mixed with charcoal? If so, liquid or powdered water glass?

I lightly coat the bowl with honey and use the activated charcoal. I let it cure for a minimum of a week before smoking out of it
