Now we’re going to cut the glass. To cut this, I cut this with a glass cutter and this straight edge. This has a lip on it that holds it on the glass, and I don’t want to move it at all while I’m cutting. And I want to open up my glass cutter so that the oil flows through it as I’m cutting. And this screw is on the top side, it points up. And you hold it just like a pencil or a pin and you only want to cut each line once. And you have to, when you cut it, each end has to have to be cut all the way off. You want to hear that ripping sound. Ok. Then I take the running pliers and I place that line right along the cut line. And there it goes. Now, I’ll cut right up to the circle in the same way. And now I’m going to cut these corners of the circle. Okay so there’s a pretty good circle. And now what I need to do is sand- I need to grind the circle.
