Step 1: Build a Jig

securing a glass cutter to a jig for cutting a wine bottle «»
Sandwich the handle of the glass-cutting wheel between two scrap 1x2s, one atop another, with the tool perpendicular to the wood, about 1½ inches from the ends. Hold the ends flush and square while you drive in a screw on either side of the tool handle to hold the tool firmly in place. Screw your scrap lattice to the flush end near the tool to form a right angle. Clamp the entire apparatus to a table or workbench as shown.
