To keep my house clean and glass (and toxic dust) free I did the majority of this project outside. I scored the glass in my garage then using boiling water and a hose over a tub i broke the glass outside, then sanded outside and even glued the top drinking glass to the base outside and let it dry out there, the base was glued indoors. Other than that i did all of it outside!!

I got my oringal idea from this site. I seem candles made from vodka bottes and thought why not drinking glasses?? after doinh research on how to do it i made some drinking glasses and this time took it up a notch!
heres a link to the oringal post i got my idea from

heres the finished project that is current on display in my kitchen window

some cut and sanded pieces on my bench out on my front porch

sanding sanding sanding....lots of sanding

using wet sand paper to lessen the amount of dust created...i didn't want to wear a mask in 100 degree heat

I've tried making my own glass from a bottle before, but it didn't work out so well. I'm definitely inspired to try it again now! I love that you used the top of the bottle for the bottom of your glass. It looks so awesome!

Cool idea! Are they safe enough to drink from?

the ones I've made like this are safe to drink out of once you have washed all the glass dust off of it. I'm not sure how well the glue will hold up in a dish washer so I hand wash it. I have made some where the bottle neck is in contact with the glue...and so is the liquid ypu drink. for those ones I put a cork in it to create a food safe barrier between the glue and whatever you're drinking. Usually I make just normal drinking glasses and once they are washed they are safe to use.

Oh cool! I was worried about someone cutting their lip but I guess if you sand it well enough it should be safe!

Yeah it definitely needs to be sanded well otherwise you can get cut. I've been some ppl using different tools with wet sandpaper to get a nice smooth edge, I just used my hands. to get the top all nice and flush I put wet sand paper on a peice of flat wood and moved the glass in a figure 8, then sanded down the lip all the way around on the inside and outside.

My brother would die for this.. I don't drink much so I'd have to find someone who does to empty the bottles for me lol
