This is the coolest looking lamp i ve ever had. It's quite simple to make. However, you have to be very careful when cutting the bottle

All you need is

  • an empty whiskey bottle
  • a yarn
  • acetone
  • a lighter
  • a pot of cold water
  • a bulb fitting

Step 1: Cut the Bottle

1. Be careful!

2. soak the yarn in acetone

3. wind the soaked yarn round the bottle's bottom

4. light it up and spin the bottle

5. you will hear the glass breaking, now cool down the bottle in a pot of water

6. You might need to use some force too in order to remove the bottle's bottom

Step 2: Install the Bulb Fitting

How long does it take fir the bottle to start breaking? Doesnt the bottle get extremely hot? Aren't there vapors or fumes that could be dangerous or at the very least awful smelling. It just seems unclear. Be more clear.
