    Turn your beer bottles into glass cups!

    I know some of you will totally do this. What better way to show off your fav beer then to have a glass set of it.

    Looks pretty easy, question is can I convince the girl to replace all our glassware with these?

    I have done a few of these myself (bombers, not 12ers). I have a bottle cutter that works pretty well, but the sanding on the other hand...20 minutes per glass if you're not picky. Not a short process.

    Sure this isn't dangerous? I'm sure I've heated some number of random battles before and the outcome is something horrible. I hope this will not happen the same with that cup making. At least not by any chance.

    Chop saw and diamond masonry blade works equally as well, if you've got one around.

    This dates me but back when I was a kid in the late 60's, early 70's, I had a kit that was kind of an early day "As Seen On TV" kinda deal that had a rotating glass cutter and a little hammer device that you would lower down into the neck of a bottle to gently rotate and tap the scribe. We used to make glasses, candle holders, all kinds of stuff with glassware. It was the kind of stuff we did before society became completely pussified and stopped letting kids be creative because they might get hurt.

    On the other hand, I'm gonna go gather some good beer bottles and try this newfangled method and see how it works!

    Turn your beer bottles into glass cups!

    I have a set of four Arrogant Bastard Ale glasses from http://www.totallyrecycledglass.com/
    They are hand blown glass. This has the advantage of being able to expand the neck of the bottle to make the top of the glass. These glasses will hold a full 22oz bomber.

    My glasses came from a trade deal with the artist. I sold him 100 bottles I had for home brewing. All Stone Brewing beers, because their graphics hold up to the heat of hand blowing.

    This seems to be making the rounds everywhere lately.

    I just made some Rogue cups

    Finished the sharp edge off with a Dremel using drum sanders.

    The Voodoo bottles were extremely hard to do. I had to score the paint, then use a knife and sort of dig the paint out of the score line, then score the bare glass with the cutter.

    The paint on the Rogue bottle will not last. I have used them for homebrewing. The paint softens and chips away after a wash or two.

    I am going to try this just for fun. Already have plenty of beer glasses. Maybe I will try it on a growler and plant some little cactus plants in it.

    Cool idea. I've tried this before with various bottles and very thin or very thick bottles do not work well.

    I would think a chop saw and silicone carbide blade (as mentioned) along with a Dremel for sanding would really make this an easier process. Definitely going to give this a shot. Wondering how they hold up over time though.

    Hey Gordan!!
    Good idea of planting little cactus in beer glasses. It will look amazing..
