Can you tell me how much a glass blower costs and the best place to get one? Also, how easy/difficult is it to use one to make a brandy container into a *cough water thingy?

Uhm... the brandy bottle will only take a diamond tipped drill bit and a
little bit of caulk, or a rubber stopper.

He could also get one of those rubber dealies from a head shop. The diamond tipped bit is key, though.

You're serious? you've tried it? I didn't even want to attempt a drill because I thought it would shatter the glass for sure.

You can find a diamond-tipped drill bit at Home Depot. It is designed to drill glass. You need to have a semifast drill, too.
Besides, you would need a kiln, torch, and other tools that are costly to work on already formed bottles.

Thanks. Will a standard $30 power drill from Lowes work ok with this type of bit?

More than likely. If it is dificult to stop, or impossible while running full steam, then it'll work. It just has to be turning fast enough, so it runs smooth. Otherwise, it will spider web the glass.
