    Thanks Darren, these are my first using actual cigar boxes...makes the process so much quicker attach the neck, piezo & cable jack, add a little deco and waa-laa...
    Which is great for me, as I need way more lab time in my neck building.
    I bet you could sneak one by the Misses' radar easily

    Here is a glass bottle cutting method using hot/cold water:

    There are better videos on this out there, but it shows a pretty reliable process. EDIT: Looking at it again, he mentions using sand paper (to smooth out the edges). Be sure to wear a dust mask, breathing glass dust is not good.

    Also, can make the Mrs. a nice flower vase...
