Making a can pipe is an easy and rewarding project. It’s an inexpensive, practical way to smoke your favorite herbs and tobaccos. Plus, you can customize your pipe in various ways to make it look unique. It’s a great way to express your creative side and make something that’s truly one-of-a-kind. In this guide, we’ll walk you through the entire process of making a can pipe.
Before you get started, here’s a list of materials you’ll need:
- Empty can (we recommend a beer can)
- 2 small pieces of metal (copper wire, aluminum foil, etc)
- 1 large piece of metal (for the bowl)
Step 1: Prepare the Can
The first step is to prepare the can. Start by removing the label and cleaning the can. Use a knife to puncture a hole at the bottom of the can. Make sure the hole is big enough for air to flow through. Then, use a drill to puncture two holes at the top of the can. One of these holes should be slightly larger than the other.
Step 2: Create the Bowl
Once the can is ready, it’s time to create the bowl. Take the large piece of metal and shape it into a bowl. Make sure the bowl is deep enough to hold your herbs and tobaccos. Then, use pliers to attach the bowl to the top of the can. Make sure the bowl is secure and won’t come off easily.
Step 3: Create the Airflow System
Next, you’ll need to create an airflow system. Take the two small pieces of metal and shape them into two tubes. Make sure the tubes are long enough to reach the bottom of the can. Then, attach one tube to the larger hole on the top of the can and the other tube to the smaller hole. This will allow air to flow through the can and into the bowl.
Step 4: Attach the Mouthpiece
Once the airflow system is ready, you’ll need to attach a mouthpiece. Take the remaining piece of metal and shape it into a tube. Attach the tube to the top of the can. This will be the mouthpiece for your pipe.
Step 5: Sand and Polish
The last step is to sand and polish your pipe. Use sandpaper to smooth out any sharp edges on the pipes. Then, use a cloth to polish the pipe. You can also use a polishing compound to give the pipe a glossy finish.
