Glass Bottle Cutters

If you tend to go through a few bottles of wine on a regular basis, here's an innovative way to put those empties to good use. These cutters let you slice your way through most glass containers, leaving you with a receptacle that can be used for all sorts of decorative ideas, such as lamps, candle holders, planters, and more.

10 Best Glass Bottle Cutters

Glass, Glass, Baby!

Glass bottle cutting is a hobby enjoyed by some, a very select some I might add, and it's a unique and clever way to multipurpose bottles otherwise thrown in the trash. They can be used on a variety of glass, though beer and wine bottles seem to dominate. Unfortunately, most kits are designed for circular bottles only - sorry Jack Daniels!

The process consists of cutting a bottle across a consistently round base and then polishing it down to make a smooth edge. It is then redecorated as a candle, plant holder, or vessel for water or food. Some are sold by artisans as works of art or collected as a hobby.

The bottle cutting kit is designed to hold the bottle in place while you score the bottle. By rotating the bottle and making a straight line through out, you should have a straight cut. The bottle will most likely be still in one piece and it'll need a little more encouragement for a clean break.

One method is delicately tapping along the score line, prompting the glass to separate. This is very imprecise and usually results in small imperfections at least. The simplest method is to pour alternating hot and cold water on the crack until the break is made. This can easily be done over the kitchen sink with little time and materials.

Separation ties or rings on either side of the score line will prevent the hot water from cracking the bottle everywhere. You can also heat the bottle with a candle flame and alternate with cold water. Some kits will include a candle for this procedure, although any candle will suffice.

Now your cut is complete, however, the process it not finished. You need to sand the cut down, from a low to a high grit, to give it a polished edge. If your kit does not include emery cloth or sand paper, you will need to purchase a couple ranging from a grit of 60-2000. This is also done to prevent injuries that might ensue with an unfinished sharp edge.
