– First and foremost, you will need to make a straight and height line that can be used to make one nice pass with a glass cutter. You can use 2 pieces of scrap wood to do this.

– A regular glass cutter can be used to make one strong pass all around the bottle. Avoid making several passes to get deeper cut, a single cut will do. Else you ruin the project by causing multiple splitting lines.

– Employ the use of physics and thermal stress. Heat glass and make it cool down very quickly. In a bid to crack the cut line, ensure to use cold water to cool it down.

– To make it done faster you could give a light tap on the glass. However, it is recommended that you take your time to repeat the process at rest cut line if you get only a part of glass off.

– For acceptable results, ensure to wet sand the glass by using a 60 grit sandpaper to smoothen the edge.

– If properly done well, you will be left with a nice and glossy surface with no sharp edges.

Now you have your unique vase, big glass for a drink or a small glassware for storing some of your kitchen tools.
