How to cut wavy glass

I recently had my first foray into cutting a sheet of glass.  The glass was scavenged from a trash pile.  Nice old wavy glass!  and for free!!!

  • Glass cutter like this one 
  • Sharpie Marker
  • Measuring Tape
  • Straight edge
  • Gloves

Step 1:  Mark your cut.  I used a sharpie marker and a straight edge.

Step 2: Lubricate the cutting wheel

 Step 3:  Score along the marker line.  Make sure to score completely from one edge to the other.  Apply firm, even pressure during the entire pass. Do NOT score a second time.

Step 4:  Snap along the score line.  They make a special tool for this, but applying even pressure on both sides of the score should be sufficient.
