For one to give the bottle a base

Since CD's are reflective and they turn ordaniry light into a spectrom it reflects a rainbow of color through the cd and through the liquid in the glass which gives an amazing Coloring effect trough the entire piece of art. If you look at the bottles reflection in the cd it will apear to be a nice rainbow like effect.

What about the edges that you will be drinking out of ? Is there anything special to do to make it smoother ? Or is it just in cutting it perfectly ?
