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:

A great job as usual, Sid. The modification looks quite demanding and it is certainly something I wouldn’t attempt to do! You know what you are doing with this and I salute your skill and knowledge. Very well done indeed.
