MONSTERS OF SMOKE Bongs How to Make a Homemade Glass Bong with Simple Materials

How to Make a Homemade Glass Bong with Simple Materials

If you enjoy smoking herb or tobacco, you might want to try making your own glass bong at home. A glass bong is a device that filters the smoke through water, resulting in a smoother and cooler hit. Glass bongs are also more durable and easier to clean than plastic or metal ones. Plus, making your own glass bong can be a fun and creative project that will save you some money and impress your friends.

In this blog post, we will show you how to make a homemade glass bong with simple materials that you can find at any hardware store or online. You will need:

  • A glass bottle of any size and shape, preferably with a long neck and a wide base.
  • A piece of glass tubing, about the same length as the bottle’s neck.
  • A propane torch or a candle.
  • A working surface, such as a wooden board or a metal tray.
  • A rubber grommet or a cork that fits snugly into the hole of the bottle.
  • A stem or a tube that fits into the grommet or the cork.
  • A bowl that attaches to the end of the stem or the tube.
  • A drill with a 3/4″ diamond drill bit.
  • Safety goggles and gloves.

Here are the steps to follow:

  1. Clean the bottle thoroughly with warm water and soap. Remove any labels or stickers from the bottle.
  2. Mark a spot on the bottle where you want to drill the hole for the downstem. The downstem is the part of the bong that connects the bowl to the water chamber. The hole should be slightly above the waterline, on a relatively flat surface of the bottle. You can use the grommet or the cork as a guide to trace a circle with a marker.
  3. Put on your safety goggles and gloves. Attach the diamond drill bit to your drill. This type of drill bit is designed to cut through glass without cracking it. You can find it online or at any hardware store for about $10-$15.
  4. Place the bottle on your working surface and secure it with some tape or clamps. Turn on the faucet and run a steady stream of water over the spot where you want to drill. The water will keep the glass cool and prevent it from breaking.
  5. Start drilling slowly at an angle of about 45 degrees. Apply gentle pressure and let the drill bit do the work. Do not push too hard or you might crack the glass. Once you have made a small dent in the glass, straighten the drill and continue drilling until you have made a hole all the way through.
  6. Remove any excess glass from the hole with a file or sandpaper. Dry the bottle with a towel.
  7. Insert the grommet or the cork into the hole. Make sure it fits tightly and does not leak. If it is too loose, you can wrap some tape around it to make it thicker.
  8. Insert the stem or the tube into the grommet or the cork. The stem or the tube should be long enough to reach below the waterline inside the bottle. If it is too long, you can cut it with a hacksaw or scissors.
  9. Add the bowl to the end of the stem or the tube. The bowl is where you will put your herb or tobacco. You can use any kind of bowl that fits securely onto your stem or tube, such as a metal nut, a socket wrench, or a glass bowl that you can buy online or at any head shop.
  10. Fill the bottle with water until it covers about an inch of the stem or tube inside. Do not overfill it or you might get water in your mouth when you smoke.
  11. Poke another hole near the neck of the bottle to make the carb. The carb is where you will cover with your finger when you inhale and release when you clear the smoke from the bong. The hole should be large enough for air to flow through easily, but not so big that you cannot cover it with your finger. You can use any sharp tool to make this hole, such as a pen, a knife, or a paperclip.
  12. Your homemade glass bong is ready to use! Pack some herb or tobacco into your bowl, light it up, cover the carb with your finger, and inhale through the mouthpiece of
    the bottle. When you are ready to clear
    the smoke, release your finger from the carb and inhale the rest of the smoke. Enjoy!
