How To: Gourd-Geous Dab Rig That Works!

Updated: Apr 3, 2020

Join in the fun, seasonal cannabis trend – DIY Gourd Dab Rigs! We'll show you how to make a dab rig (that actually works) out of a pumpkin, squash, watermelon, or any gourd of choice.

All you need is a few simple tools:

Gourd - we're using a butternut squash


Exacto Knife

Dowel or screwdriver


Step 1: Plan

Grab your gourd, and use a pen to draw 2 circles (one for your dab nail and another for your mouthpiece.) You want to be able to connect these two holes inside the gourd in order to draw air from both points.

Step 2: Execute

Take an Exacto-knife and cut a small hole into one of the two circles; a Mouth Hole and a Nail Hole. Then, take a dowel or screwdriver and drive it through to the middle of the gourd. Make sure not to create a third hole by pushing it too far.

Step 3: Do it again.

Remove the dowl from the first hole and push it into the second hole, so the two holes meet in the middle. Check out the diagram for a visual. Again, make sure not to create a third hole by pushing it too far.

Note: Idiot Proof your Vegetable Rigs - DO NOT cut the top off and hollow out the inside of your gourd. We, of course, put a quartz nail into our gourd-rig, you don't need to, but, we make and smoke dabs.

Step 3: Enjoy!
