Who doesn’t like a Pumpkin Spice bong rip? At Cannabis City, we decided to test our pipe making skills with festive fall squashes. You can use any squash you like; we chose a Pumpkin and Delicata squash for ours.
- Squash or Squashes of your choice. We chose Pumpkin and Delicata Squash
- Drill with assorted drill bits
- Simple Pumpkin Carving Kit
- 1 Glass stem
- 1 Glass Bowl
If using a long thin squash, like the Delicata, start by drilling through the end of the squash as far in as you can. We used a medium-sized drill bit to assure excellent airflow.
Next using a drill bit slightly smaller in diameter from your bowl piece, drill from the top when the squash is lying down at a sight angle away from the end with the hole (be sure to start at the length of the drill bit used to created the long tunnel so that you will drill into the other drill hole.)
Once you are confident, your tunnels match up, put bowl piece into the top hole. Load up and enjoy! We found this squash to work well and was completely air-tight.
For our pumpkin, we chose a sugar pie pumpkin as it is a great size to hold and will not require as much inhaling to use as a larger one. We started by removing the top using basic carving tools.
We then emptied out the inside as if we were going to do a regular pumpkin carving.
Next, using a bit a little smaller in diameter than our stem piece, we drilled at a downward angle about 1/3 down from the top of the pumpkin. We then put the stem piece into this hole.
Directly across from that hole, we drilled a smaller hole at a similar angle downward and put our bowl piece inside. Place the top back on pumpkin.
We found this pipe to be functional but not quite as airtight as the Delicata squash. But we LOVE the look! Perhaps next time we will try it without removing the top and just drilling into the center. Let us know how your festive fall pipes come out!
