You can make a weed pipe out of just about any piece of wood. It’s not difficult to do, but it does require some practice to get it right. The main thing you need to remember is that the smoke has to travel through the joint smoothly, so the pieces of wood have to be cut correctly and fitted together carefully.
You can buy a special tool for cleaning out your pipe, but most people use an old screwdriver or knife blade. It doesn’t have to be particularly sharp; just try not to scratch the inside of your pipe too much. Also be careful not to poke yourself with it when you’re done!
A good way to make sure all the parts fit together properly is by making a mock-up first on paper or cardboard and then testing it out with actual wood before cutting anything up. You can also just use one piece of wood as a template for all other pieces, which saves time if you’re doing a lot of them at once (like me!).
If you want something really fancy like an ornamental design or colored stain, then this method won’t work so well because there’s no way to keep your joints tight enough without glueing them together first. But if all you want is something quick and simple.
