Hey guys, I'm don't know much about pipes and was just wondering
what it's like to smoke out of a wooden pipe. Also, wouldnt you
burn the wood trying to keep ur weed lit? And how long will you have to
wait before applying flame to the weed again before it goes out, like
how long will it take for the weed to go out?



The reason im wondering all of this is because im looking at pipes on
the internet, preferably the one Gandalf used in lord of the rings,
because it's awesome and its a prety cool pipe, and I want to buy it
but not sure how good smoking weed out of it would be...I would think
ud light the thing on fire before smoking much...please help me...every
bit of info on pipes would be greatly appreciated.

well i myself was looking at the same pipe and most of the collectors stores have ons that are for colleecting and not for actual use so look to see if you can use it before you buy it. and as for it catching on fire it wouldnt just from smoking weed from it every once in a while and how long does it take for the weed to go out well that depends on how many people and how fast its being hit but if its just you by your self then it would proly go out almost conpletely in between hits so i wouldnt worrry about that to much and you can light it as much as you want as soon as you want and as often as you want and to be honest i wouldnt think that the gandalf pipe would be much of a weed pipe but i would be cool. also long pieps are fragile so dnt be rough with it

Oh cool. Thats what i thought, but i still think it would be
pimp, just like a show of status to have a pipe like that, haha. Yeah,
people on the site say that they smoke out of it all the time with
tobacco so ig uess it'll be good for weed right...???



Also, what does "Carbonizing" the pipe mean exactly??? I see it being used alot.

Could carbonising be in reference to charring the wood bowl?

no what it is is just as it was said "drilling a hole in the side of the bowl" the purpose you ask. the answer is simple when u are smoking a bowl you put your thumb over the carb, light the bowl and suck the flame goes down and lights the weed because that is the only way for air to go through the piece, when you stop lighting it and your ready to stop hitting then take your thumb off the carb and suck in through the bowl clearing the smoke out of it, this way the smoke dosent go stale. Just go online and look at a bowl and you will see a carb on the side.


The equvalent to a carb on a bong is when u pull the slide, there is the carb it allows air to go through to clear out the smoke

I used to make wooden bowls and here is what I did to prevent them from slowly burning up.


Take a nice dollop of honey and put it in the bowl. Smear it around and then turn the bowl upside down and heat the honeyed bowl. Try not to drip hot honey on your hands. After some of the excess honey has dripped off, just puff on the bowl with flame applied and the honey will carmelize into the wood. This will protect your bowl from burning and will add a pleasent and mild honey taste to the weed you smoke out of it. This effect is not permanent and you have to reapply honey every 20-30 times you smoke a bowl. But for an easy fix that is rather pleasent to smoke, honey works wonders.


You could also get some natural clay, and try to make a VERY small "bowl liner." Once you had the shape right and had molded it to the bowl, take it out fire it (or let it dry or whatever...DON'T use FIMO or something stupid) and then use a wood glue or epoxy (only a TINY bit) to cement it in place. That would be a little bit more permanent.


Hope that helps.

Carbonizing doesn't have anything to with a carb on a pipe.
Carbonizing (or blackening) is a breaking in process where the pipe is
prepared for a long life of smoking.



Taken from smokingpipes.com:

"At the end of each smoke, your pipe should be given a good cleaning.
Allow the pipe to cool, and then stir up any ash and dottle left in the
bottom of the bowl. Placing one finger or the palm of your hand over
the top of the bowl, shake the pipe for a few seconds to evenly
distribute the ash along the inside walls of the bowl, which will
greatly speed the formation of 'cake', a protective layer of carbonized
tobacco and ash inside your pipe. Cake acts as an insulator, greatly
extending the life of your pipe and guards against burn outs."



Sometimes people will use honey in the bowl to accelerate the
carbonizing process. Once you have a nice cake formed, you
shouldn't have to worry about burning your pipe. Also, whatever
you plan to smoke will be dried up plant material (tobacco, marijuana,
etc) and it will burn much more easily than the wood of the pipe.
I know several people who smoke from wooden pipes, and only one of them
has ever burned their pipe, and that was after several years of
smoking.

I'll stand corrected on my deffination of carbonizing... i just said that because there was another topic on here somewhere where that was said. i know a kid who whiddled a bowl when he was in the woods ontime to smoke, and it made a black ash layer with out doing anything after smoking and the wood never burned, very nice, but i'll stick to glass
