Recycled Beer Bottle Glasses

Recycled Beer Bottle Glasses | The Zen of Making
On Saturday afternoon, I went to my first Craftaholic’s School of Art and Creativity workshop at Spacecraft in Brooklyn. (Update 4/26/13: Spacecraft is now closed.) We made glasses using recycled beer and soda bottles, which is something I’ve wanted to learn how to do for quite a while.

Yoshi, the workshop instructor, showed us all we needed to know: Score the bottle, burn the line, dip it in water, then sand the sharp edges.

After a little soap and water (okay, and a LOT of sanding), I went home with a set of 4 recycled glasses!

Did you know it was that easy to make your own glasses out of recycled beer/soda/wine bottles?

      If you cut 2 matching bottles just below the neck line and then join with tape, you now have a long glass brick, just bed it down onto some cement and you have a bottle wall.
      Just a note of warning do not use this idea as a load bearing wall or put a lintel over it, then it will be load bearing!
      Good luck
