How to Cut Glass

Cutting glass may seem difficult, but actually it is quite a bit easier than it sounds. Here are some tips on getting started with basic glass cutting.

To begin cutting glass you will need a glass cutter, a solid, padded surface to cut on, a Sharpie or other marker, running pliers and goggles.

If you are just going to cut glass occasionally you can probably get by with a low cost glass cutter than you can find at a hardware store. However, if you plan to cut glass regularly such as for stained glass or for mosaics you probably will want to invest in a better glass cutter. There are several different styles of glass cutters available including standard cutters that are straight like a pencil, pistol grip cutters which have a handle that you hold in your hand, and Thomas grip cutters which have a small, curved piece of plastic that acts as a thumb rest. If possible try holding several styles to see which feels the most comfortable to you before purchasing your glass cutter.

Once you have your glass cutter you need to set up your cutting surface. Ideally you should cut glass standing up, so if possible find a table or work bench that is at a comfortable height for working on your feet. If you must sit to cut glass be sure to choose a stable table or bench that is at a comfortable height for cutting. Rather than cutting on a hard surface, you want the surface where you cut glass to be padded. You can attach a mat or flat - not fluffy - carpeting to the top of your work area for cutting the glass on.

Once you have your work area set up you are ready to start practicing your cutting. First, put on your safety goggles to protect your eyes. Then, start with a piece of scrap glass to begin with. It can be a piece of glass from an old window or just any old piece of glass that you don't care about. Ideally for practicing your glass cutting you don't want to use too large of a piece of glass since it can be difficult to learn that way, so try to keep it under 8-10 inches at its widest point. To begin with you are just going to practice cutting straight lines across the glass.

It is easier to control the glass cutter when you cut toward yourself than when you cut away from yourself so you will want to start on the far side of the glass. Position your glass cutter on the far side of the glass making sure that it is straight up and down and not leaning to one side or the other, apply moderate pressure and pull the glass cutter toward yourself relatively quickly and very smoothly. Try not to stop the movement during the cut and try to keep the pressure on the glass cutter even. If you have to stop, don't lift the glass cutter off the glass, instead, maintain the pressure and continue pulling toward yourself. You may find your first few times that either you use too much pressure or not enough pressure. When you get the pressure on the cutter just right you will hear a sort of scratching-screeching sound from the glass. It is a difficult sound to describe, but you will probably recognize it when you hear it.

When you scratch the glass with your glass cutter it is called "scoring" the glass. The glass cutter creates a scratch in the surface of the glass, and because of the nature of glass it will have a tendency to then break along the scratch. In order to break the glass, you will use a special pair of pliers called running pliers. These pliers have a flat, wide tip. One side of the pliers is completely flat, and the other side is slightly curved. When you line the running pliers up with the score than you made in the glass and squeeze gently the curve of the pliers applies gentle pressure to the underside of the glass and causes the glass to "run" or break along the score line. If you watch carefully when using running pliers you can actually see the break running down the score line as you squeeze them. To ensure a good break in the glass always be sure the line on your running pliers is lined up perfectly with your score line and use gentle pressure. If you squeeze too hard you can break or chip the glass so it is important to be gentle.

If your first few practice cuts don't break easily, keep working at it and adjusting the pressure and speed at which you are cutting. Eventually you will get the technique down and learn the right pressure to use to get a clean cut. Once you have mastered straight cuts you can start practicing with slight curves. Curves are more difficult because the glass will have a tendency to break in a straight line. Gentle curves can usually be broken fairly easily, but sharper curves can be much more difficult to break, and after a certain point are impossible to break with just one cut. Once a curve becomes very sharp you need to cut it using a series of straight cuts rather than just one cut.

Practice following pattern lines by drawing gentle curves onto your scrap glass with your marker. Then, try to follow the curve that you have drawn as you score the glass. Surprisingly it takes a little bit of practice to be able to follow the lines perfectly so keep at it if you have any trouble. The more you practice your glass cutting skills the more challenging projects you will be able to do so it will pay off in the end. No matter if you are cutting straight lines or curves always make sure that your glass cutter is perfectly straight up and down and not leaning to one side or the other to get a good, clean cut.

Always score from one edge of a sheet of glass to the other edge - don't ever stop scoring in the middle of a sheet of glass. Always wear your safety goggles when cutting glass and don't ever cut glass when you are distracted or unfocused. Always wear closed toe shoes when cutting glass to prevent injury to your feet if a sheet of glass were to fall or break. Always clean up your glass cutting area and sweep or vacuum the floor when you are done cutting. Most importantly, use common sense and don't do anything that may be dangerous.
