Same process

I have been in the process of selling my home & moving that I have not yet had a chance to use my bottle cutter. I purchased it because I thought it would easier & a shorter process. After looking over the device & it’s instructions, it seems that it has the same steps & my be just as complicated ?More > < Less

Expensive and not so easy, but when it works it's cool

I purchased the bottle cutter and had been collecting bottles. When I finally had the chance to begin cutting, The instructions say that many more items were needed than I had on hand. I thought I'd remembered reading "all you need to begin," but I must not have. The price of the two sanders and sandpaper was pretty shocking: $70, with shipping.

All that aside, I was able to cut about 5 bottles, with as many failures, and I really do like the results.

Not as easy as they make it sound.

by

Equipment is well made and the concept is good but it is very difficult to make the cutter travel the circumference of the bottle and end up where you started. If you tighten the clamps too tight it is very difficult to turn the bottle, but if you loosen them then the clamps move on the bottle and you lose your straight line.
Great idea but it needs more refining.

About Bottle Cutting Inc.

Bottlemorphosis

This easy-to-use bottle cutter transforms your bottles into a vase, votive, drinking cup, or candle holder . . .

Upcycle in just three steps. First, score the bottle, then separate the pieces using the silicone band. Lastly, use the high-grade sand paper to smooth to perfection.

Maker Patrick Lehoux wanted to create an easy, straightforward way to turn bottles into functional or decorative objects. After he had his first prototype, he named it after a small South American mammal with big, sharp teeth, the “Kinkajou.”

Much like the little Kinkajou animal, this bottle cutter is compact but efficient. We tried it out here in the office and found the process straightforward and also super convenient.

Start collecting bottles—this small hack opens up the possibility for all sorts of do-it-yourself projects.
