Default glass bowls

i recently discovered i have a grinder kit and i can drill through glass (im working on a hhh in my free time) but i was wondering if glass bowls have to be made of pyrex. i got to take a wine bottle home from work the other day and i want to cut the top off just above where it flares out so i can make a bowl out of that, but if that type of glass wont work i would like to know ahead of time if anyone can elaborate

Yeah, most modern wine bottles aren't much better than Beer bottles (glass wise). They are designed (in shape) to withstand internal pressure rather than Heat.

I would fear that type of glass may shatter if put under too much direct heat. Be very careful if you decide to try it.

see if you can drill out a hole with water running on the area where you are cutting the whole time and go slow.

Someone told me long ago you could drill out beer bottles and such like that.

Go to a big kitchen supply place or CrateAbdBarrel.com and see what kind of pyrex stuff you can use. You might find pyrex funnels. then you get something with a flat bottom - cut it to fit and make holes in it. Should turn out like one of those mail to female bowls...

Please don't try this as I am certain the glass will shatter/explode when heated and I can't tell you how horrible it is to have glass splinters in your face.

lol dont worry, if i did cut it i planned on taking it outside and packing it with some crappy shisha i dont touch and prolly just let it sit behind the garage with a coal on it (not unattended!). but making a hookah out of the wine bottle has since become a main tinkering focus since the cork can be used as the stopper if you know how to make the hole without damaging the cork
