Build Your Own Glass Tool
Tips & Component Descriptions
Bases and Form
The base of your piece is where you should start, it is the foundation of your creation.
Beaker Base Closed Top – The bottom of a water pipe that resembles a scientific beaker in shape with a closed top.
Beaker Base Open Top – The bottom of a water pipe that resembles a scientific beaker in shape with an open top.
Straight Tube Closed Top – The bottom of a water pipe that resembles a scientific beaker in shape with a closed top.
Tube Extension Large – A large straight tube extension.
Tube Extension Small – A small straight tube extension.
The neck of your piece is what completes your creation and is the final stage of the smoke getting to your mouth.
Bent Neck Closed – A closed bent neck is a straight tube neck that has been bent to curl close to your mouth. It’s designed to prevent splashback.
Bent Neck Open – An open bent neck is a straight tube neck and mouthpiece that has is bent to curl close to your mouth. It’s designed to prevent splashback.
Straight Neck Closed – A straight tube which serves as the mouthpiece with a closed top.
Straight Neck Open – A straight tube which serves as the mouthpiece with an open top.
Percs are the unique devices within your pipe that percolate and diffuse your smoke in water, bringing you a smooth, unique hit with each different perc variant and combination.
Domed Showerhead Perc – A dome-like enclosure with slits or holes where the dome meets the bottom. These percolators allow for diffusion when the smoke passes through the dome and separates when exiting the holes on the edges.
Frit Disc Perc – A fritted disc perc is a perc that is made up of fritted glass, which can resemble a single, solid, crystal-like disc of glass that has thousands of microscopic openings to diffuse the water and smoke, which in turn create very small bubbles and a very unique pull.
Honeycomb Perc – A type of disk perc that looks like a honeycomb. It offers more diffusion than a standard disk perc because of the number of small holes that further divides the smoke that passes through them. The more holes, the better the diffusion. However, if the holes are too small, drag increases.
Inline Perc – An inline perc is a horizontal tube with gridded slits cut around and under the tube. Inline percs are also often referred to as barrel percs.
Matrix Perc – A taller puck-type perc, with many, many tiny holes that make for a bubbly diffusion.
Reti Slit Perc – A perc that features subtle oppositely running slits which create a unique vortex-type pull of water and smoke.
Showerhead Perc – A vertical tube that flairs out at the bottom, with slits or holes for diffusion.
Sprinkler Perc – A unique perc featuring a sprinkler-like design that shoots water just like a lawn sprinkler.
Swiss Perc – A vertical style percolator seen on a unique style of water pipes that resembles Swiss cheese, with holes made on a large vertical disc-like shape that lets smoke pass around them.
Tree Perc – A tree perc is comprised of a chamber with multiple internal arms. Arms will either be open-bottomed or closed, usually with slits on the sides. Smaller slits give smaller bubbles, which gives more diffusion. The more arms, the more the smoke is separated, which allows for even more filtration and percolation.
Joints are the part of the piece that connects your bowl, dome, nail, etc. to the rest of your rig.
45 Degree Joint Open – An open joint that connects to your rig at a more acute, 45 degree angle.
45 Degree Joint Outline – An outline of a joint that connects to your rig at a more acute, 45 degree angle.
45 Degree Joint – A joint that connects to your rig at a more acute, 45 degree angle.
90 Degree Joint Open – An open joint that connects to your rig at a fully upright 90 degree angle.
90 Degree Joint Outline – An outline of a joint that connects to your rig at a fully upright 90 degree angle.
90 Degree Joint – A joint that connects to your rig at a fully upright 90 degree angle.
Tools and Other
At this stage you can add a personal touch to further customize your very own rig or water pipe by adding ash catchers or logos.
Ash Catchers – An ash catcher is a removable barrier that adds an extra layer of diffusion to your pipe.
You have 3 types of ash catchers or precoolers to choose from:
- A double chambered 90 degree ash catcher
- A 45 degree downstem ash catcher
- A basic 45 degree bowl ash catcher.
This is where you can totally customize your pipe with whatever colors and designs you can come up with!
