I am doing a little project with a glass block the kind that people put in windows in bathrooms, make showers,walls etc. I want to cut a hole in the top so that I can make a vase of sorts out of it. Any thoughts would be appreciated.

Jenn,

You can use Diamond Tip drill bits for drilling in glass. I don't know if they will have the diameter you want though. Also, look up Glass Etching on the web and you should find many glass working tools.

Another note, Glass chips and shavings are very dangerous. You should wear a dust mask and Goggles (not safety glasses) when driling into glass. Very fine bits can be inhaled as they float around. Also, drill onto a disposable surface that will catch all the filings from the project so that glass dust won't go everywhere.

Hope this helps.
