Default What can you use as a hookah bowl? (besides fruit)

I was wondering if there are any alternate things i can use to use as a bowl for my hookah. This is because i need a bowl for my homemade hookah and i dont wanna keep wasting apples to make the bowl. And please dont suggest buying online or anything because i cant order anything online atm.

thank you

The aluminum can bowl is pretty ghetto and relatively dangerous (it can easily cut you), but definitely more permanent than fruit bowls

well the guy cut the can and taped the cut end with duck tape so it was safe to handle... either way mod or Egyptian bowls are not very expensive so pick one up in brick and mortar store if u cant order online

If you have mad origami skills you can make a phunnel style bowl out of foil. You can buy a little flower *** from a craft store for less than $2 and put a screne over the hole and tape it to your hookah. You can carve a bowl out of wood or stone if you are realy fancy.

The only problem I see with this is the coating on the can, use a blowtorch or something to get rid of the coating, similar to what siagcore did to his aluminum bottle cap funnel "scalli" mod.

since it's a homemade hookah, you're not going to find many things to use other than hard fruits or vegetables. Yeah, it's annoying and messy as hell, but look at the bright side, you get an added twist on your flavors. And like sonofagram mentioned (twice), you can use a potato - which is cheap as hell. Just try not to burn the edges of it. burned potato isn't a good flavor to add to your tobacco. :P

on my homemade hookah most of it is all copper pipeing so it doesnt heat up as much but i used 1 1/4" to 3/4" copper piping connecter then used a 3/4" to 1/2" piping connecter so it would fit on my stem and i made mine for like 15 bucks and you could make it fit a regular hookah pretty easy if you know what your doing

Potato but... Lined with foil everything that the smoke passes through so you wont taste spud.

Or you can skip the foil and put some sourcream in the shisha

If you just happen to have a little brass bowl (like a brass mortar) and a drill bit and a paddle pit, and some...
awww... nevermind... That only works in my world, and on my homemade rig..lol

Goodluck!
