I won't be blowing any big pieces (ie carboys) or pieces that are commonly available in glass (flasks). I will order some Borosilicate lab glass this week, and draw up some designs.

I'd like to see some pics even if you don't decide to make any more than a few for yourself.

Which brings us full circle back to the bong issue. What do you think?

I still say the glass tap handles would be a cash cow. They go for $50-75 online, but they can't be nearly that expensive to make

How about a glass autosiphon? (This would be so sweet, but I'm sure it is not doable)

I do think a glass wine thief would be sweet, I could boil it in a tray in the oven to sanitize it if I wanted to. Even better is if I could take it apart to pressure cook it to sterilize.

Someone show me some glass tap handles please. As time (and money) allows I will get on it and take some pics when done.

I appreciate you thinking of us. Actually glass blowing is pretty cool. A neighbor when I was growing up used to do it as a hobby. It facinated me. He made some beautiful things, some of which my mom still has to this very day.
