A kerosine lamp shade made from an old sunkist bottle would be pretty neat. Even a coke bottle would work good. I have cases of old soda bottles.

Thanks

I'm thinking of buying half or third sized bottles, only to get through them quicker, turn a month project into a few days LOL

You might be able to get them at the local bars or recycle centers. I saw some of these videos last week and I'm going to get a bunch of wine bottles to make some cool glasses and oil lamps. The projects are endless. Thanks OP, that is the easiest so far.

Here's a vid on projects and sanding the glass

good point. Hand polishing is always the safest bet.

The pads I was referring to are for polishing concrete, marble or granite and the RPM are typically low, so if someone is skilled enough it shouldn't cause any issues.


I don't know why I said high speed, the high speed actually mars the stone surfaces. And as you say can be hazardous.

I remember my ex making glasses out of old wine bottles, she had a special glass cutter to take the neck off. She would carefully use my torch to smooth the edges. Using a glass polisher sound much safer.

We cut a lot of bottles at my parent's place. I suppose if you are looking for nice smooth edges, this or the heating element method are a good way to go.

If you must cut thousands of bottles though, there is no better method than a wet tile-saw. It is by far the fastest, easiest way. Also, the added water on the blade keeps glass dust to a minimum.

Here is a link to my Dad's channel, if you might wander why somebody would need to cut thousands of bottles.

And to Cody599


The wife and I are looking for ideas to personalise our first real home together, ironically she's a science teacher LOL. This is perfect to help us.


There might be some cheap and fun ideas in those videos for you to try at your place.

The simple ideas are usually the best.

Nice one OP, thanks.

You're dad is my kind of guy. We think along similar lines.

I have a Dewalt tile saw, and a large 2 1/2 horse brick saw, and never thought to cut a bottle with it. I guess if if goes through porcelain like butter it would work for glass. Going to give it a try.

Great video's and idea's thanks for sharing.

A simple expansion and contraction video?

A little common sense?

Buddy I'm a chemical engineer and I was shocked by the video and eager to learn the method--a little humility goes a long way, try it.

I agree especially when boasting about your title as a "chemical engineer".


Let us all know how your trials go for this one. Thanks for your input.

There's a lot of tounge and cheek/sarcastic comments I make on ATS, this thread is no different.

Wtf? That's awesome. I'm going straight home after work and doing this.
With my luck, though, I may burn my house down.

If all you want to do is get rid of the sharp edge, and have no care for how 'polished' it looks, use 140 grit.

If you want the polished look, 140-400-Cork.

If you use a die grinder, medium density rubber drum or softer. Softer gives more leeway in operator use, but does make it harder for a consistent finish.

If you want glass specific products, try CR Laurence.

Here is the same principle for glass cutting with heat and water, but with a couple of different heat sources.
