    Lay out your glass on a sturdy table and use the ruler to measure across the glass.

    Get out your packing tape and cover both sides of the glass in the area you will be cutting.

    Generously rub the bar of soap over the glass. Be sure you are using a brand new bar of soap as opposed to a used one.

    The bar of soap will help to reduce friction that will be made between the cutting tool and the glass.

    Use the dremel tool delicately to begin cutting the glass.

    The glass and dremel will begin to heat. When this happens, poor a small amount of the cool water over the glass to let it cool. Once cool, you can begin cutting again.

    Once the cut is finished, remove the packing tape and use the 150 grit sandpaper to refine the rough edges of the glass. Spray liberally with Windex and wipe the surface clean on both sides to finish.
