I wouldn't, but I don't know anything about glass work. I'd buy those little self-adhesive rubber gripper dots or the felt ones that you can put on decorative objects to keep them from falling off of shelves. You could sand them down to where they would make the base stand level. I have an Egyptian base and it's a tiny bit wobbly, so I use a felted wool pad underneath my hookah when smoking to keep it from wobbling around on me. Works like a charm.

+1 My generic egyptian rocked like crazy when I got it. Hookah-Shisha had forgotten the base protector when they shipped the order. I stuck it on as soon as it came and now the thing is rock-solid...or nearly so anyway!

If you want to do anything to glass, you have to find a way to keep the glass cool. Thats for drilling or grinding. Otherwise it will break. And uniless the tools are speciffiacaly made to cut glass you will need to go very very slow. Too much pressure and smash.. I had to drill holes into large galss bottles with the thick bottoms. Lots of broken glass before i got it right.
