This step by step tutorial of how to cut and polish glass wine bottles is a relatively safe way to turn empty wine and beer bottles in endless craft projects.
There are many articles available on the internet that describe glass cutting in quite a detail and some of them are really good and have clear instructions.

In five easy steps I have explained the art and craft of glass cutting and polishing for the convenience of the readers.

To begin with you would obviously need a bottle cutter. There is a wide variety available in the market however, if you don’t have one or don’t manage to find one you can even make it yourself using a regular glass cutter. Make sure you are very carefully while cutting into a glass bottle so as to avoid any injuries. This article, although, will explain all the major steps in bottle glass cutting but will give a detailed explanation on grinding and polishing. It is advisable to practice on some spare bottles if you are not very good at it or trying it for the first time.
Here are a few tools that could make this project a lot easier:
