Cutlery Candlestick

My final piece for Halloween is a cutlery candle stick. I really wanted a candlestick on the dining room and I hope you'll agree it set off the table well.
I headed off round the shops looking for something suitable and cheap, I found some forks and teaspoons in the pound shop and with a bit of creativity could see how to turn them into a candle stick. I laser cut 3 disks to hold the cutlery together, each with a hole just large enough for the handles. This tight fit keeps the whole structure pretty rigid, then some bending of metal to form shapes to hold the candles.
