A hand-forged candle holder made from re-bar.



Without the candle.  The next version will have a smaller peg to hold the candle.



What the bottom looks like.

This looks great but heck....rebar?  I can't believe how you've manipulated it!!!  I love the look of it.  Incredible!! I can't believe it's rebar (of course I believe it but I can't believe it.  Wow)

That is gorgeous. And I have to agree with Jinjeet Phoenix on the question of how did you manipulate rebar?

My son is the blacksmith.  He works on his own forge. 

Most of his work is posted here.

Very Cool. I want to learn to forge for this very reason. And home-made silverware too. That would be cool. A formal silverset complete with sporks....anyway! I love it. Smiley

Homemade sporks.  I LOVE that idea.  I will pass it on.
