This candle holder was made during a course I took on joinery. During this week long course I learned all types of traditional joinery and at the end of the week I had to design a piece that included a joint from each of the groups of joints that I had learned. The joints include forge welds (on the ends of the feet) (the metal is heated till it is semi-molten on the surface and is fused by hammering it together), a hot slit (in the center of the back leg section) (the metal is slit and drifted out to the desired sized hole( a hole can be made that is larger that the cross-section of the metal without significantly weakening the metal, since the mass is pushed to either side), a mortise and tenon joint (on the front leg), and an adapted collar (the rising pieces on either side of the candle plate. This candle holder was made in 1998 and is 18" tall.
