    How to Drill a Hole in a Glass Bottle

    You can't cut both sides at once as the force created by clamping on the recently cut end would be strong enough to crack or break it. I cut a bottle once for an art project by scoring the area to be cut with a diamond edged dremel (the kind of blade that looks like a tiny circular saw blade), and then completing the cut. Alternatively, a tile saw may work, but it may be too much of a blunt instrument for a glass bottle.By the way, I had to sand the bejesus out of the bottle after cutting as the dremel did not do a completely even job (part of the nature of a hand-based tool and my inability to cut a straight line, I guess). For what I was doing though, it was sufficient.
