Dab rigs are practically a necessity for the modern cannabis connoisseur, but a quality hand-blown rig isn’t something you can just whip up with household items. To find out more about the time, care, and artistry needed to create a glass dab rig, we visited the Boro School in Seattle, Washington.

Erin Bourguinon, an instructor at the Boro School, shows us how she builds a dab rig from start to finish. Using a technique known as coil potting, Erin builds her full-color tubes. Once she has her tubes together, she’s able to shape the various pieces and begin assembling them. After the dab rig is assembled, it heads to the kiln for one last cycle to help the glass anneal overnight. Once the glass has settled and cooled, the rig is ready to use.

Have you ever wanted to learn how to blow glass or make your own dab rig? Check out the video for Erin’s step-by-step guide to her process and share your experience in the comments section below.
