As I had been successful drilling some ceramic/stoneware I decided to try some glass. I drilled 4 holes in it and it went well a little chipping on the inside about the same I had with the ceramic . I planted some coleus in it just to see how it grows indoors.

That is nice!!! I love to use glass only if it has drain holes. That would also be perfect for some little succulents!

That is the nice thing about the drill bits almost anything can be used as a container

What kind of bit did you use?

Liz, I have two a 3/8" and 5/8" Dewalt Diamond Drill Bits I used the 3/8" on this. I do use mine in a drill press which makes the drilling operation easier.
