      I’m working on it! =) I’m getting good at the cutting, but drilling is difficult and I don’t have the right equipment to make bezel frames around them right now. Eventually, though!

    I was just wondering how to do this the other day, cool!

      Thank you! I really wanted to share to save other people the frustration of a year of failures.

    Thanks for the tips! I bought a glass cutter longer ago than I’d like to admit and have been scared to try it. These tips make me think I can actually do it :)

      It can be pretty intimidating! I really don’t know how many bottles I’ve broken in the process of figuring it out. Even with the easier method, don’t expect every cut to be perfect. They will be much, much better, though!

    Nice job of getting a straight edge on those bottles. I’ve been cutting bottles for a while with a tile saw and its hard to get a nice edge. If you want to use them for drinking glasses you’ll need to shape and smooth it a lot. I came up with a good way of shaping the edge. Check out my kickstarter campaign:

      Nice! It looks like you’ve really figured out how to get a nice, rounded edge. It is really amazing how sharp those clean cuts are until they’re sanded down. I’ve had to give up playing with glass bottles for the time being. We’re living in Hawaii right now and the deposit/refund at the recycling center makes it a little harder to get lots of free bottles compared to when I lived in a college town. Best of luck with your Kickstarter – I’ll give it a social media shout out after the holiday. =)
