Help a noob with DIY bong components?

  1. Ok, I'm not a complete noob, but I'm not extremely experienced either... :smoke:

    Yesterday I picked up this awesome 4' Italian wine bottle:


    The reason is obvious... :bongin:

    Anyways, I've done quite a bit of research on DIY bongs and bongs in general, and I had a fairly good idea of what I needed. Monday, my buddy and I had planned on going to Exscape, where I was going to look for what I needed. (I had planned on looking for a basic diffuser stem and bowl, hopefully something with a green theme to it, and a rubber grommet, if needed) and then going to get an appropriately size diamond-tipped drill bit.

    However, when I explained to my buddy (who is quite a bit more experienced in the marijuana culture than I am) what I was going to look for, he said you don't need a bowl for a bong, just a stem. :confused:

    Based on my research, this made no sense to me. I know he has (what I'm pretty sure is) a bong bowl, but he calls it a "head piece." Perhaps, he simply doesn't realize it's also called a bowl, but then he wouldn't say all I needed was a stem. Unless he took into account the "head piece" he has. :confused:

    Now I'm just not quite sure what I need... :rolleyes:

    So, my question is, what do I need? I want to know exactly what I need and what to look for when we go, so pics and/or links would be helpful. Also, what should I expect to drop money-wise on this?

    Thanks in advance! :gc_rocks:
  2. this is a little of topic but why would anyone make a wine bottle like that in the first place haha
  3. what beaver said pretty much
    but one more thing, a camera - to take a pic of your finished masterpiece
    i lonve homemade glass, i gotta post one of mine whenever i FEINALLY find the right size of drill bit for my test tube downstem(no headsop for miles so i improvised)
    for now its just got a bamboo slide, with no downstem so i just pull the slide out part way(still under water) to clear it

    anyway... pic and milkvid when finished man
