    Make a Cool Light from a Whiskey Bottle

    To drill holes in glass, plumber's putty (a soft putty used to form seals between sinks and drains, etc.) is just the thing. Roll a small piece of putty into 1/4 to 1/2 inch thickness and form it into a circle. Place the circle of putty over the spot to be drilled and use water to fill the putty "dam". Keep the dam filled with water, and frequently back the drill out to insure it's not clogged with glass residue as you're drilling. An eye dropper is useful for this. No glass dust, and very little heating of the bit or glass if you do it correctly.
