  1. I used a 1/2" drill bit made for glass and tile from Lowes.($12.00) It took me about 45 minutes to drill the 3 holes for my fountain. I didn't make a 1/2" hole, just opened it enough for the spigot to fit. I had my wife drip water on the area I was drilling. The glass I drilled is 3/8" thick. It was easy to drill and I even applied pressure on the bit until it was just about to break through, then I backed off.
  2. For the etching I used this glass etching cream called Armor Etch. I put masking tape on the glass and used a razor knife to cut out the design. Applied the etching cream, let it set and then washed it off. That's it. You can buy adhesive stencils to use. All of this can be found at any hobby shop. I got mine at the Hobby Lobby in my area.
  3. A pic of my homemade fountain. I want to thank everyone here for the ideas and the info on what to use and how to do it. It was alot of fun to make and to USE!

  5. My name is Tim and I became interested in absinthe after watching 'Carnivale' on HBO a few years ago. I researched a little, never bought any and my curiosity faded.... Fast forward to the present day. My wife and her friend went together and bought me 2 glasses, a spoon and a bottle of La Fee Parisienne for my 40th birthday which was the Nov. 16th. The 3 of us enjoyed a few glasses of it that night. I now know after reading on various sites that it's not the best but I don't think it's the worst. I have really learned alot by reading all the information on this site. Cheers
