Default Mini phunnel's

I recently found out that there is a need for a smaller phunnel and Im trying to make one that will fit your need's I want to know your opinions and how you would want it...
I made one its about 2 inches in diameter and 3/4 an inch deep and the lip is about 1/8 of an inch lower then the rim... I took some pics next to the small mya bowl that came with my qt so you can get a better idea...
I am looking for opinions so feel free to share them...

He's not trying to recreate a mini, as quite a few of them were nearly as big as a small.

Very nice looking! Make it about 13/4 in diameter. A little bigger around than a silver dollar would be great.

thanks, that helps alot actually... I wasn't sure just how small to go... I'll have to work on getting it just right, I afraid to make it too thin because it could be a prob with heat management, what do you think about going shallower instead?... I'll pm you when i think I got it perfect.

The main problem with the minis is that most people use cubic coconut coals, and they cover more than half the surface area of the foil - and with no mod this is a problem. Mini's will never smoke as well as bigger bowls, but are great for Desi Murli!

I gotta say, my mini is definitely smaller than my small and smokes tangiers perfectly. but an even smaller phunnel would be great.

I think that would work great

I think u should send some reviewers some to review(me me me me) obviously il pay for it

When will you be able to produce them?

But to tell u the truth one in between them to sizes would be perfect, as looking at this angle it seems like it holds like 5 grams, but for short sessions it would be great.

I suggest getting a pottery wheel. Throwing a bowl on a wheel makes it a much faster process.

I still think you should make ceramic scalli mods. It'd be easy and cheap but you'd sell a crap ton of them.

Unless you sell them for $34.99 lol.

Oh and another idea would be shorter phunnel bowls, assuming of course they still smoke the same.

i would do a slip forming instead. you can make a bunch of molds and make a lot at one time instead of one at a time. i have been thinking about doing this same thing my self. the only problem i have is a place to fire them and glazing

once you get these going good i will buy a two or three from you

Making a mold is a process in and of it's self. I am trying to make suggestions that don't include entirely new sets of skills. Also molding includes making one, perfect and symmetrical piece to cast from.
