Fantastic idea and nice work. What kind of saw did she use?
Where are we going, and why am I in this hand-basket?

I just love these.
I have been thinking of getting a bottle cutter to make a different type where you cut the top off and invert it into the bottom of the bottle. What she has done is very different and really nice. I too would like to know what kind of saw she used? Was it a wet saw like you use for tile and if so what blade did she use?
Life is Great! Holly

Wow, I'm just seeing this for the first time ... Awesome Planters! Your wife is very talented indeed! Wish I could master something like this but I'm dangerous around glass ... I'd have a lot of broken wine bottles. Smiling
