How to Cut a Bottle with Fire…Kinda

Olive Oil Jar

Ever since Thanksgiving there’s been this beautiful, empty olive oil jar at the back of the cabinet. It was slated to be thrown in the trash, but I wanted to try and do something creative with it. In the course of searching for ideas, I came across a few internet videos of how to cut a bottle in half using a string, fire, and a water bath.

My wife and I have always been a couple of fire bugs so we were both curious to see what might occur if I tried the technique on a large wine bottle and the olive oil bottle.
