I just finished my newest homemade creation, "The Pineapple Bawng". I just used a normal sized pineapple that I bought for $3.50, some plastic tubing, a straw, a stir stick/packer from a blunt wrap pack, a bong slide and some gum.
First I cut the top of it off at an angle so I could put it back on like a lid like you would do to a pumpkin. I then scooped out the inside creating a hollow cavity for the water to set in. After that I cut a small hole near the top back portion of the pineapple and shoved a plastic hose through to create the mouth piece (like a mix between a bong and a hooka). I then cut another smaller hole in the front of the bong and inserted a straw to serve as part of the female piece and connected the blunt packer thing to the straw for stability. Thats why the slide doesnt look like its at an angle like a normal bong but it curves down once it gets inside the pineapple. Finally I sealed all the holes and the top with chewing gum.
OMG, I just ripped it and I have to say I am pleasantly surprised. This thing hits like a fucking champ! The smoke is nice and kind of unique. Its cooled down nicely and makes your chest feel tense like your going to cough and make your throat hurt but you dont it just feels like your about to for a few seconds.
The taste is good. Kinda fruity but not necessarily pineapple its weird yet very nice. There is zero after taste. No smoke taste and no fruit taste.
Really the only negative thing I would have to point out is the messy and stickiness of the whole ordeal. Its also kinda hard to get the gum to seal so I might try something else next time but that really doesnt matter because its fun tryin to figure out how to get it to work right. All and all I would say this bong is definitely FTMFW!!
