What you don't see in the photos is my large shop behind the candelabra. For the past 25 years I have been in this shop mostly doing woodworking. I very much like welding, mainly because I don't have to do it all the time. It is a form of pottery to me.

The candelabra you see in this listing is quite a departure from my usual. It is very traditional, and may be used inside and outside.

It is heavy, about 40 pounds. It separates into 3 pieces.

Assembly doesn't require any tools, only a bit of muscle to tighten the top and bottom against each other. It wouldn't take more than 5 minutes to assemble.

The middle section a vase looking structure is made from stock cast iron. Cast iron doesn't weld very well, so there is a through rod that connects the bottom and the top perfectly. The vase is just sandwiched between the top and bottom pieces. The bottom is very heavy steel, heavy enough to keep the candelabra from easily tipping. The top is made from 3/16 inch steel that was cold rolled into the shape you see in the photos.

There are five candle holders that will hold a standard 3 inch candle, of any height you want. Just in case you don't want real candles, there are 3 inch diameter LED lights that would work perfectly, available at most craft stores. I finished the piece with a brown metal primer. I then sponged the black paint, covering about 80 percent of the brown, leaving just enough of the brown to highlight the piece. The two colors give it depth.

I Then sprayed it with several coats of sealer. Also, the candle cups thread on and off for cleaning.

That makes it quite convenient. I can also build something custom for you, in many different styles. I have had people ask me to build many things around a sentimental item owned by a grandparent, family member, or friend, now lost. Most recently I built a fireplace mantle made from a tree that was growing in the house my customer grew up in, owned by her late father. Contact me, send me your ideas, and maybe I can build something unique and lovely.
