Nick Jager: Bathila Kankanamge,
I started out with a 1/8" for the pilot hole, 1/4", 5/16", and finally a
1/2". You really don't have to go all the way through with that one. Good
Fabrizio Tofanelli: Hello Nick....
I just don't get it what crystal is.... mind to tell me??
and, an idea for your next bottle... actually i was searching for a video I
saw a few months ago, where a girl did a lamp but with shattered glass....
a nice one indeed =)
Ryan Hicks: Thanks for the help. And on a side note, love the Proclaimers playing in
Barbara Merkel: I've made a few and can't find a way to get the lights to stay up at the
top, they always fall down so the bottle isn't illuminated all the way from
top to bottom!
Lonestar Vt: Thanks for the video. I think it would be wise to wear leather gloves too.
I just cut my hand badly on a glass oven door so I'm a little on guard...
Angie Sheidler: Thank you for the video. :) My daughter needs to do a recycled project
for school. We're going to try this and see how it goes.
msradwoman: What kind of crystals are you using and where can I get them? Thanks
Margartvl K: Love this idea! Easy idea - Would be great for Christmas or Halloween!
Nick Jager: Have you seen all of the great comments on this video? Take a look.
Clown Whisper: I like how you were careful not to say you needed to see if you have a big
You said "so we're going to see, right now, if I have a big enough.......
Well played Nick Jagger, Well played.
Jan Milissen: In order to prevent cracking the bottle, use water or oil to cool down the
drillbit and glass. I would not attempt anything like this dry drilling
with a precious bottle.
jdphd: Excellent presentation and directions. At first I thought it was too
difficult and better watch later.
Nick Jager: Mary,
If you use regular Christmas lights you will experience some heat
accumulation. For someone who's planning on running the bottle lights
longer I would recommend LED light strings. This lights give off no heat
and use less energy. The only downside is the cost. LED lights will be a
little more expensive.
Petie Wheatstraw: Wheres your gloves?
Bathila Kankanamge: What are the sizes of the drill bits?
Fitra Fadila: cooollll (y)
Drew Hupke: ur a fag
Leticia Beam: these look great! This video is very informative on cutting holes in glass!
Gary Lee: I thought you said Mick Jagger!
TheRanhughes: My wife loves these!! They look easy to make. Thanks for posting this
video...it was very informative!!!
Laura van Leeuwen: Won't sugar do the exact same thing as the crystal?
Shawna McMillon: Hi Nick, this video is so helpful. Thank you so much for posting this. i am
for sure going to try this when I move into my new place. Where can I get
the crystal film? Joann Fabrics, or michaels maybe?
Nick Jager: Shawna,
I've had really good luck at Joann's. Let us know how things turn out, we
have a DIY Show Off page on our Bottle-Lamp website!
Diego Benitez: es muy bueno tu trabajo, te felicito y gracias por compartir
your job is great, congratulations, and thank you for share
sHest013: Thanks so much for this video!! What number strand of lights do you use?
Antonio Bruno: The video is great, but I would like to point out one safety point for
those trying to do this for the first time. BE SURE TO WEAR SAFETY GOGGLES
AND LEATHER GLOVES!. If the bottle has any unknown flaws, there is a good
chance that during the process there would be a shatter. If this occurs,
severe lacerations, and/or eye damage is a real possibility.
MesserAaron13: You're also supposed to do this under water
kden z: how do i make glass look crystallized?
Geri Kelly: than you!
sHest013: Do you have an email so I can show you this glass.. If that's okay with
swampbilly peek: This was really helpful, thanks!
Jeane Williamson: I love this idea Nick...but how would it be if you used lights with the
white cord when you fill it we with the white filler...then the cord
wouldn't show. Just a thought. Gonna give this a try. Thanks. You know we
make holes in bottlesd using a diamond hole bit which makes the hole...but
you have to do it under r I nning water and it takes a while. I think what
you are doing seems less time consuming and easier.
kmariebox1: Isn't is necessary to be lubricating the bit with water as you're drilling?
Mary H Nunez: Thank you for writing back so quickly. Will definitely try that. Have a
Geri Kelly: hi nick, was wondering where you to purchase the light strands "off season"
at a low cost. would be willing to purchase online to keep cost down. I
cannot find any anywhere. any help would be very much appreciated.
sHest013: Sorry. Yes I meant glass
Chase Christensen: What about when your lights burn out? Haha. Great video, thank you.
Kirsti Randall: What a great idea for 'christmas lights' in a bar!!
Thanks for the tutorial Nick!
Mary H Nunez: Hi Nick! Thank you for your video. We had no issues with drilling the hole,
however on our strand of christmas lights of 25 about 18 are burning out,
and the bottle is very hot after a short period of time being plugged in.
What is the longest these lights should stay plugged in, will the crystal
fill help? Just feels like it's overheated, not sure what I'm doin wrong.
sHest013: Alright...... I tried it and my glad broke :( so what am I doing wrong.. I
took all the steps you showed
Dax Nayyar: Hi, Nick this is an awesome video and i got grt knowledge from this but i
want to know that did you grab the bottle hardly or it was loose @ 2.22
minute..Thanks and sorry for bad English?
Judith Yoma: Help!! I've tried drilling 4 bottles and all of them have shattered. What
am I doing wrong. I am using Bosch glass and tile bits.
Marisol Anthony: Make my bottles lol I'll try this!!! Thanks a lot!
Norma McDonald: Nick, when drilling a hole in the wine bottles, is there at any point, you
use water to keep the bottle cool from cracking?
Tom Blakeley: Thanks Nick your video helped a lot. i had been using only a 1/2 inch bit
and it took forever.
Bonnie Wells: Where to you buy the crystal fill?
sHest013: Yup you've been doing this for awhile lol! I started closer to the bottom
and one after the other, I switched the drill bits out! So I'm trying it
Wendy Thompson: Awesome. I've just started making these and I love the crystal idea. I'm
using diamond tip drill bits because I read they will last longer. How
many bottles do you get out of your tips? I saw those too and wondered if
they would work?
Jack Fitzgerald: Hi Nick, very nice video. I managed to successfully drill a hole. How large
is your largest drill bit? I used a 5/16 inch and it is not large enough
for the lights to go through. Thanks.,
adrianna Berlingerio: Hi. Can you tell me what size drill bits were used and the final hole size
used so that you could fit the lights inside. Thanks
