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.

    I am curious if this would work on different shapes or if it only works on bottles with a circular diameter.

    @Penelope and @Laura the Kinkajou is only designed to cut round bottles.

    Is it safe to sand -- no danger of breathing in the glass particles?
