    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 ?

    th edhes on mine were nice and smooth if u think its sharp use a fine grain abrasive grade sandpaper or dremel bit.

    lol, speaking of water bottle glasses, I was thinking about making joke glasses (the kind u wear on ur face) out of the bottoms of 2 water bottles and some pipe cleaners. I never got to doing it tho
