Where's the video??? I really want to see the process!!!
The video did not upload because it exceeded the 10mb file size limit. The free video can be viewed at http://learnglassblowing.com Look in the FREE STUFF menu. <br> <br>mwheeler03
<p>What, is this some kind of joke? You don't give a link to the video and the FREE STUFF menu you refer to is a bunch of links to a bunch of links that go nowhere.</p>
So this is basically an advertisement for the mentioned website?
Sovereignty, The link to http://learnglassblowing.com provides free video instruction about creating your own cut and fire-polished glassware from recycled beer and wine bottles. It also includes a how-to video to make an angel fish pendant. The site suggests where-to-buy or locate glassblowing tools, torches, and equipment to do the described glassblowing techniques. We do not sell these items ourselves - but the site lists where they are available.<br> <br> If some one is interested in learning D-I-Y advanced glassblowing techniques, additional glassblowing videos and an instruction manual are available for sale on this site.<br> <br> We do not have a video file size small enough to meet the limit of 10mb for Instructables uploads. Providing the Instructable in this way seemed to be a reasonable alternative.<br> <br> Regards, Mike Wheeler<br> learnglassblowing.com<br> (Make sure you use the &quot;Free Stuff&quot; menu item to view the free videos).
Sorry. I'm just accustomed to not navigating away from the site 'cept to download or purchase something. <br><br>The results look friggin' awesome. Most of the glass booze and hooch bottles I see are begging to be used for something other than candle holders and vases. Looks like it easily passes for promo stuff from the vendors.
Hey, can you go into a little detail about your equipment? Mainly the torch equipment, I see the simple torch, but don't know much about torches anyways so I dont know the larger torche that you use second. Thanks
Where do I find a polishing torch like the one you had in the video?
These look pretty sweet and I am so inspired, but as for instructing me how to make them... I'm still clueless.
Do you have to anneal the bottles in a kiln after polishing the edge to keep them from cracking?
What did you use to add the base to the wine glass?
How is this an instructable? I only see four pictures and a turntable. Where's the other turntable and microphone?
HI.....For cracking off the top of the bottle, I use a small propane plumbers torch available at home supply stores (Home Depot, Lowes) and for fire polishing a National Hand Torch available from suppliers on my web site www.learnglassblowing, link to equipment and there are 3 suppliers of this particular torch. This should help. <br> www.learnglassblowing.com
