Making your own pipe

Now we have to drill the holes for the tobacco and the mouth piece.

Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
First of all you have to have an idea of how the tobacco pipe should look like. Draw them on a paper and select the one you prefer.

– 1 Block of Bruyere wood
– 1 ferule
– different kind of grater
– a saw
– pencil
– a drill with different gimlets (Hand auger)
– one circle
– a Dremel like tool
– sand paper
– milling cutter min. 18 mm
– time (you will need a lot of it)
– a idea
Now work out the rounding’s. It’s beginning to look more and more like a real pipe.
This Instructable is about how to make your own tobacco pipes at home. I didn’t want to spend a lot of money for a tobacco pipe, so I decided to make one myself. Here is how I did just that.
As you can see in the picture you have to measure out how deep you have to drill the hole for the tobacco. Be careful the walls of the tobacco chamber are not to thinly constructed. If they are, the heat is going to destroy your chamber.
Then draw on the sides of the block of wood the design you have chosen. Now work it out (It should mean that now you have to catch your tools and begin to work 🙂 Your block of wood should look now similar to the one in the picture.

Using your sandpaper sand the pipe until you are satisfied with it.

Making your own pipe

You can also get pipe screens made from quartz, which are even more heat-resistant than glass. Replaceable glass or quartz screens aren’t as common as the aforementioned options, with most high-quality glass bongs incorporating borosilicate or quartz screens right into their design. These often feature decoratively placed holes instead of the ultra-fine mesh of brass or steel.

The easiest fruit to morph into a pipe is the apple. This sturdy yet soft treat will allow you to carve out a pipe system without much effort. Use an empty pen tube or a small knife to carve out the central stem, but not all the way down. Try not to go over three-quarters of the way through. With this hollowed out, do the same thing but perpendicular to your first carve. These two empty tubes should meet at the end.
You can also make a screen from a paperclip or a similar piece of stiff wire. Bend the wire into a spiral and position it snugly in the bowl. This can work as a halfway-decent screen that keeps larger chunks of ash and weed in your pipe.

Glass pipe screens are normally made from a special, heavy-duty type of glass called borosilicate. This heat-resistant type of glass won’t crack from changes in temperature, and won’t shatter as easily as regular glassware. Obviously, screens made from glass are not flexible, so you can’t cut them to size. As such, you need to make sure you get the right size for your bowl. As glass doesn’t wear out, these screens can, in principle, last forever; that is, if you don’t break or lose them.
There is really no “best” type of screen—what’s most important is that it fits snugly into your bowl. You know your screen fits if it doesn’t pop out after pressing it down into your bowl. The rest, whether you prefer steel, brass, or glass screens, is up to you.
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.
So, what pipe screen should you use with your homemade bong? And further, what do you do if there are no screens around?
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!

Because steel screens are not as malleable as brass, fitting them into odd-shaped bowls can be a little more finicky.

It's 3am and you finally finished that paper. There's not a place open and you still want that smoke before bed. We have the solution for you!
