You should use an even thinner piece of bamboo, preferably one with the wood membrane on the thin end of the stick which will serve as protection against ashe going in your mouth.
The other way to do this is by making an inch wide hole on the bottom part of the Pringles box and put some aluminum foil in the hole and stick the end of the aluminum outside the hole with some tape, most commonly used is the gray duct tape.
Are you a baguette fan? Baguettes are a common item across France, some parts of Canada and almost every bakery and pastry shop.
Grab a pencil or a chopstick if you have and drill a hole from one of the pointy ends of the baguette. At the end of that tube drill another smaller hole for your joint or a metal bowl.
Alright so this basically boils down to the same thing with most of the smokable fruits and vegetables – take a pencil shove it all the way through the long part of the fruit.
This is pretty much the same deal as The Toilet Bowl, except for the cloth part, as you don’t have to plug on end. All you have to do is drill a couple holes for your joints to stick ‘em in and pull.
Take a used toilet paper roll and make 2 or 3 holes on one end of it, and cover that end with a thick cloth and a rubber band over it. The holes you just made will be the place where you will insert your joints or blunts.
These will come in handy a lot of times when you want to make a makeshift pipe and they help you turn almost anything into a pipe with just a little effort.
This method works, as I previously said, on a number of fruits and vegetables such as avocados, pears, melons, watermelons, giant strawberries (yes, we saw and tried them – dope.), bananas, cucumbers, leeks and lots of others.
Pipes are an important staple in the cannabis culture and one of the favorite DIY stoner projects. We teach you how to make 6 unique pipes.
So, what pipe screen should you use with your homemade bong? And further, what do you do if there are no screens around?
Let’s first make it clear that the following methods should only be used as last resorts. If you can go out and buy yourself a glass piece, do that. These aren’t materials traditionally used to smoke weed. A proper bong or pipe will always do your bud more justice. The flavour, the burn, and the smoothness will all be better from an object specially made with these factors in mind.
Brass screens are perhaps the most common, featuring in tobacco pipes and many glass and ceramic bongs. You can get them at just about any tobacco store or headshop for little money. These circle-shaped cut-outs are made from brass mesh, with each screen about the size of a small coin. Brass has the advantage that you can bend it easily; this way, you can fit these screens easily into various bowl sizes. If you happen to have brass screens that are a tiny bit too large for your bowl, you can easily cut them to size.
Since this article is about making a homemade bong, chances are you don’t have any actual pipe screens around. In this case, you can make some DIY pipe screens for single-time use. Here are your options:
Make sure you learn the best techniques to save you in your time of greatest need. You never know when you might need a backup bong. Luckily, it’s easier to make than you think!
• Glass or quartz screens
Steel screens are often used in silicone bongs and acrylic bongs, although the latter can easily be scratched with these screens. They work just like brass screens, and there is no difference in taste. In fact, aside from their colour, the main difference between these two materials is that steel is more durable.
Whether you make your pipe from a soda can or piece of fruit, you’ll want a pipe screen to use with it. If you smoke your weed without a screen, it could be quite an unpleasant experience. A screen keeps the loose bits in your pipe instead of in your mouth, so you can enjoy hitting your bong much more!
You can customise things further by changing the type and quantity of fruit. Essentially, anything will work as long as you can build an airflow system like with the apple. You can even stack vegetables and fruit together to build a larger and tastier bong. You might even be able to add water if you use a pineapple, for example. Or, try doing it with a coconut and use its natural water! For this, you would stick a hollow tube through the side, carve out the top and pull from there. Surely sounds delicious.
