I recently bought a calabash, but discovered it was quite inconvenient without a special stand. I quickly threw one together from scraps in the workshop (I have yet to test it since I haven't been home since though). A friend saw it and commented that it reminded him of a kwak glass stand and after having googled it I can't but agree, the semblance is striking. The only thing is the diameter of the hole might be a bit small, but not having seen one IRL and with no measurements I can't tell for sure. Does anyone here have one of these stands and can provide measurements or a guess as to how it might work as a calabash pipe stand?
Here are some pictures:
