Cotoneaster cascade shohin

The pot is an old Japanese rice bowl. This gets put in a safe place on a windy day.

I have collected a few ashtrays and bowls that I thought would make nice pots if only I could drill some holes in the bottom. What sort of drill bit did you use?

Drill Bits

Post  Mitch Thomas on Wed Apr 13, 2011 6:13 pm

Hi Ogie
The best drill bits to use are the core type bits that Glass people use to drill glass you can usually buy them for $25 US. for a 1/2" hole. It is easy to drill them use a battery drill and keep the bit cool with water. I drill them all the time at my Glass Shop we usually charge $5 US per hole.
Hope this helps
