Once you’ve got your socket, find a piece of screen. This screen is to keep your bud from falling into the downstem. The mesh needs to be fairly tightly woven so burned bud doesn’t fall through. An easy DIY solution to this problem is to unscrew the tip of any faucet and remove the screen. Cut the screen to fit the large end of the socket. The nice thing about this step is that once you’ve got the screen in there, you really don’t have to find a new one for a while. You can remove it to clean now and again (if you feel like it), but, really, you can just leave the screen in there all the time. It’s not like you’re going to actually use it for its intended purpose any time soon.
You may also need to seal the socket/pen tube interface as well. Keep in mind that if you glue these two pieces together, you won’t be able to get them apart again. That’s why we like silly putty for all our sealing needs.
Homemade bongs can be fun for parties and when your regular paraphernalia isn’t available. But for regular smoke sessions, a glass bong is best. You don’t have to worry about whether everything is airtight or whether it will work correctly (it’s designed with both of those things in mind). You also don’t have to worry about hazardous chemicals being released when you heat up the components. And you don’t have to worry about the whole thing coming apart when you pass it around. We know you did a great job putting it together, but it is MacGyvered after all.
Both the plug and the ball point can be removed with a pair of pliers. If you can’t find a stick pen with a plug in one end, you can always cut the sealed end with your scissors. We still recommend pulling the ball point end with the pliers but you can cut it in a pinch. Just remember that there’s a tube of ink in there and it may make a bit of a mess. Plan accordingly. Once you’ve removed both ends of the stick pen, you’ll have a hollow tube to use as a downstem.
An airtight seal (or as nearly airtight as possible) between the socket and pen tube, and the pen tube and the water bottle, makes smoking with this bong so much easier. This is where the glue or silly putty comes into play. We like the silly putty because it can be peeled off and reused after your smoke session. That said, glue or super glue will work just as well but can’t be reused (nor can the pieces be disassembled).
As mentioned, most of these items can be found somewhere in the house. If you can’t find the exact piece we mention, look at the purpose of the component, read the instructions below to get an idea of how it’s used, and improvise a new solution. Here are the supplies you’ll need.

$3.00) depending on which brand you buy, so you could purchase a few and keep them in various places so you’ll always have on handy. The 7/32 socket has one small end and one large end. The large end will be the bowl and the small end will be attached to your downstem.
That’s it for the bong itself. You’ll probably also need a pin or needle, a knife or scissors, and maybe a pair of pliers. The pin or needle is just to poke a hole in the bottle. It really doesn’t matter which you choose because it’s just to get the hole started and won’t be the final size. The knife or the scissors can also be used to poke the hole but will primarily be used for doing a bit of cutting on the pen. But again, we’ll explain that in the instructions below. Now let’s get to the actual build.
