Default Recycle Bombers into Drinking Glass

Todays project was recycling bombers into drinking glasses. I just got a bottle cutter in the mail the day before. I started with 11 bottles and ended up with 6 glasses.

What do you think?

How sharp is the edges? The idea is cool if it works out safely.

The edges are smooth as silk. I used coarse, medium and fine emory cloths and a lot of elbow grease to smooth them out.

pretty cool idea especially knowing you were able to smooth the edges. will they hold a whole 12oz beer now?

What do you think?
Sorry but I think the idea is not a great one and from the pictures I think you have failed to make drinking glasses that I would be game to use.
Try turning then into lava lamps or something.
