    If you're doing this a lot I suggest buying a diamond drill bit from your local hardware store. Also, make sure you're stopping to wet the area that you're drilling, especially if it's a large piece of glass. (:

    You are right! I don't do this often, but I do have and use a diamond drill bit. Comment was from "Martha Stewart." Thanks for the great suggestion.
