Sandeman glass

It’s another Porto glass – slightly bigger than the last one and dedicated to a different use. Separating the bottom from the top is always a big question mark. It worked this time. The process of making a glass like this involves buying a bottle and emptying it – these steps are very satisfying too!

I don’t like to use the word “sanding” for glass, but that’s what it is and it’s working well. Sharp edges from the top were sanded with 60, 80 and 220-grit sandpaper. Then I used 320 for both the top and side edges. Next, – 600, 800, 1500 and 3000 grits finished the easy part.

The inside was sanded with 240, 400 and 600-grit sanding bands.

I then used my felt wheel with car polishing paste. Very low RPMs and still some mess. The finished look, however, was impressive – a mirror-like surface.

Once the labels were removed the glass was properly cleaned. This is the size comparison with the smaller one:

It’s all about details – some lettering and groove make this glass distinctive.
