Quite unusual wine bottle with capacity of 500 ml (instead of 750 ml). It’s perfect for a small, slender flower vase. Usually it’s easy to cut bottles because glass cutter is perpendicular to the bottle, but in this case I had to struggle a little harder.

Boiling and cold water finished the job.

5 grits of sandpaper – W.I.P. – top and outside.

Sanding drums – 3 grits, 1 inch mandrel, very good results.

Polishing compound and buffing wheel to clean the surface.

Visual size comparison (500 ml can) and the vase reflecting the surrounding lawn. Beautiful colours!
