We’ve been to the local pubs and restaurants and stocked up on their unwanted wine and beer bottles. A big thank you to the New Lodge and The Porterhouse for collecting empties for us.

Some more bottle cutting and hopefully our technique will mean we can provide more chunky, rustic, tumblers and cool beer bottle glasses. Tragically, all the large Corona beer bottles keep fracturing down their length making the pint-sized glasses the hardest to produce. We’ve been cutting them as near to the neck as we can which seems to help, but then there is a lot of grinding to get the size right.

We love the final product but not the task of making them – especially the grinding noise. Must keep in mind that it is all worth it in the end.

If you live in Swansea (SA4) and have these any of the following items that you may be planning to recycle or throw away, then Estuary Home would love to hear from you:

  • wine bottles
  • beer bottles with printed logos
  • glass jars
  • damaged roof slates
  • pallets
  • wooden picture rail
  • scaffolding hand rail or treads.

Drop us an email or complete our contact formĀ telling us what you want to get ridĀ of. If you are happy for us to do so, we can collect these unwanted bits and pieces and make them into the things that we think will be practical and beautiful additions to peoples’ homes.

Our details are on our Contact Us page.
