How do you make a bottle wall?
Although bottle walls can be constructed in many different ways, they are typically made on a foundation that is set into a trench in the earth to add stability to the wall. The trench is filled with a rubble of pea gravel and then filled in with cement. Rebar can be set into the foundation to add structural integrity.

Does glue gun work on glass?
Can you use a glue gun on glass? Yes – but there are a few things to consider before you do so. Firstly, you must ensure that the area of glass you are using the glue on is clean. Secondly, roughing the area of glass you are using with an abrasive material such as wet & dry paper will help the glue stick.
