This wasn’t the first attempt to cut these square oil bottles. I’ve been using this oil for a while for 2 reasons – it is good oil and of course to get the bottles themselves. Surprisingly this time I successfully cut all of them! No rejects!

I didn’t remove the labels because it had always failed. But not this time – I still can’t believe it – 100% success!

DIY dry grinding station was set and ready to go.

Some dust was created and trapped by cobwebs.

Top and outside edges are smooth and polished. Sandpaper from 40 to 3000 grit were used, as always. Also, the labels were removed with some kitchen towels and white spirit. Total time consumed – 2-3 hrs.

The next step, which is sanding and polishing the inside edge, is actually another story and needs to be covered by another post.
