Recycle Bottles for DIY Projects [Video]

Rather than tossing bottles in the recycle bin with this simple hack and a little elbow grease you can recycle them into new containers like drinking cups and vases.

In the above video Matt Richardson from Make magazine shows us how to use an inexpensive bottle cutting jig to recycle bottle into new things. With a little polishing you can drink more than beer out of your favorite beer bottles. Watch the video above to see how and hit up the link below for more information.

How-To: Bottle Cutting [Make]

Jason Fitzpatrick is a warranty-voiding DIYer who spends his days cracking opening cases and wrestling with code so you don't have to.
