Start with the smaller strip of wood and screw it to the end of your board (mine is a leftover laminate piece). Make sure that the screws don't come through at the bottom!

Now you need help from a second person. Hold the glass cutter right over the spot and secure it with some screws. Make sure to let it stand over the edge of the wood, so it has contact with the glass!

Now how to use the thing! Oil the bottle with any oil. Lay the glass bottle inside and press it very thightly into the edge and to the glass cutter. With your other hand turn the bottle around..

Then boil some water and pour it over the score. Right after that pour very cold water over it and the bottle will crack right at this line!

You really can hear it crack! But like I said: my boyfriend ruined the score line so the bottle didn't break exactly 😔
