Nice tutorial, with several good tips and ideas, even though I don't use BE glass.
For one thing, I think whenever I've tried to cut the rim off a drop using my tile saw, I have had the bowl oriented wrong. You show the bowl part to the left side of the blade. When I tried it, I had it to the right. It hits the cutting guard this way. I never thought to turn it to the other side -- I just figured I needed a bigger saw. Duh
Always something to learn!
