Making Instructions (Login to see the full instructions)

Remove the neck of the Bombay sapphire bottle using the diamond edged blade, keeping the main body of the bottle.
Using a permanent marker and a ruler, draw cut lines that will guide you to cut the bottle into quarters.
Carefully cut each quarter out using the diamond edged blade. It is important that you do this accurately as this step will determine weather the glass will sit flush together and contain liquid.
Using the circular grinder, grind two of the quarters to the point that they perfectly align when joined at the cutline.
Remove stickers using hot water. Using UV setting glue, join together two quarters. Apply a small amount of glue to avoid it spilling over the edges, as it is hard to clean.
hold each edge at 45 degrees against the diamond belt sander, ensuring that each edge is now smooth.
Add the gin glass to the glasses made in Part 1 in order to complete the collection. See Part 1 for instructions on the shot glasses and Rum, Vodka and whiskey Glasses.
