Step 1: Pieces
The friend who gave me the idea to build this in the first place said he knew of a way to make a bowl, but then described some pretty sketchy sounding engineering involving clay pots and hemp thread. I bought my bowl for 5 dollars from a faux hippie store in the mall. It was the most expensive part I paid for. You'll also need a rubber nipple, termed a "sleeve" that is sold either online or at a smoke shop, that serves as a seal between glass hole and nylon tube. You'll also need a plumbing piece found near the nylon tubing called a brass hose barb or hose mender, if you want your mouthpiece to look like mine. You'll also need a roll of electrical tape. Here's all that in list form.
-(1) Glass bottle
-(1) length of copper pipe that fits into the bottle snugly.
-(1) length of 1/3 inch nylon tube
-(1) rubber hookah sleeve
-(1) ceramic hookah bowl
-(1) roll of electrical tape
-(1) 1/3 inch brass hose barb
-(1) corded drill
-(1) 1/2 inch glass cutting carbide drill bit
