How to use a wet tile saw to cut glass bottles

Step 7: Finish cutting the bottle into rings...

Picture of Finish cutting the bottle into rings...
Continue cutting until you have reached the last section of
the bottle which can be cut evenly, typically before the neck,
until the bottle is completely cut into rings.

Keep in mind, you don't have to work with the tiny section at
the top of the bottle. It is not wasteful to use another bottle as long
as you return the scraps to the nearest recycling center.

Hello Diego,

I am so sorry for the delay in my response. I have been lazy about checking my messages.

If you are going to fire the rings in a kiln, don't worry too much about the chips, as they should melt down and no longer be very sharp. A new blade will work wonders, but also remember to let the saw do the work, and don't force the glass into the saw. Be especially careful, and go slow.

Unfortunately, I do not have any helpful information about large microwave kilns, as I only have a small one, and my other kilns are actual ceramic kilns.

Many thanks!

Karen
