How to Make a Homemade Glass Bong with Simple Materials

If you are looking for a way to enjoy your favorite herb or tobacco without spending a lot of money on a store-bought bong, you can make your own at home using some simple materials. A glass bong is a great option because it is durable, easy to clean, and provides a smooth and cool smoke. Here are the steps to make a homemade glass bong:

What You Will Need

  • A glass bottle with a long neck and a wide base. You can use any kind of glass bottle, such as a wine bottle, a beer bottle, or a soda bottle.
  • A 3/4″ diamond drill bit. This is a special drill bit that can cut through glass without breaking it. You can find it online or at some hardware stores.
  • A battery-powered drill. Do not use a corded drill because you will be using water to cool the glass while drilling.
  • A rubber grommet with an outside diameter of 31/32″, an inner diameter of 1/2″, and a 3/4″ groove. This is a rubber ring that will seal the hole you will make in the bottle and hold the downstem in place. You can find it online or at some hardware stores.
  • A glass downstem and bowl. This is the part that you will insert into the bottle and use to pack your herb or tobacco. You can find it online or at some head shops. Make sure the downstem is about the same length as the distance from the upper curve of the bottle to the opposite side of the base.
  • A lighter or a torch.
  • Some water.

How to Make It

  1. Clean the bottle and remove any labels or stickers. Rinse it with warm water and let it dry.
  2. Mark a spot on the bottle where you will drill the hole for the downstem. Choose a spot on the upper curve of the body where the surface is relatively flat and close to the waterline. You can use the grommet to trace a circle with a marker.
  3. Prepare your drill and drill bit. Attach the diamond drill bit to your battery-powered drill and set it to 3/4 of its maximum speed.
  4. Get a steady stream of water over the drill spot. Turn on the faucet and hold the bottle under it so that the water runs over the spot you marked. This will keep the glass cool and prevent it from cracking while drilling.
  5. Start drilling slowly and gently. Press the drill bit against the marked spot and apply light pressure. Do not push too hard or you might break the glass. Keep drilling until you make a hole through the bottle.
  6. Insert the grommet into the hole. Push it in until it fits snugly and securely.
  7. Insert the downstem into the grommet. Angle it downward so that the end inside the bottle is submerged in water. The bowl should be facing upward on the outside of the bottle.
  8. Fill up the bottle with water until it covers about an inch of the downstem. Do not overfill it or you might get water in your mouth when smoking.

How to Use It

To use your homemade glass bong, follow these steps:

  1. Pack your herb or tobacco into the bowl. Do not pack it too tightly or you might restrict airflow.
  2. Hold the bong by its neck and place your mouth over its opening.
  3. Light up your herb or tobacco with a lighter or a torch.
  4. Inhale slowly and deeply as you see smoke filling up the bottle.
  5. When you are ready to take a hit, remove your mouth from the bottle and exhale.
  6. Repeat as desired.

Congratulations! You have just made your own homemade glass bong with simple materials. Enjoy!
