I show how to make the glass bottle cutter that I used in my “How to Cut Glass Bottles” post (https://www.instructables.com/id/How-to-Cut-Glass-Bottles/). The glass bottle cutter makes it very easy to cut glass bottles. It works by using a glass cutter that etches or scribes a line at the desired location. Heat is then applied evenly around the score line with a candle by rotating the bottle about 1⁄4 inch over the flame. An ice cube is then rubbed around the score line. This is repeated until the bottle breaks apart. This is a great way to recycle wine bottles. You can make drinking glasses, lamps, vases, and many other things from the cut bottles. You can also buy a glass cutting jig if you don’t feel like making it.

<p>I had been working on a design for a bottle cutter. After seeing your idea I may try making something similar.</p>
<p>Fantastic tutorial. After scoring and breaking the bottle, what would you suggest for making the edges smooth like for a drinking glass? </p>
