I like the idea of scales candle holder and planed for it many years ago. I worked on it just last week and here it is. There are many designs for this type of candle holder but this one is my own. The three candle sticks go through six rings on two bridges, unlike the designs I normally see, where the candle sticks are lifted by two pairs of stright pieces of wood. It is so balanced that I need to add only one 10 cent on the left stick to keep the bridge horizontal.
Pictures # 4 & 5 show the handle that I designed to carry the holder.
NOTE: ( JUST ADDED ) Picture # 6 shows the wooden washers that keep candle stick in the centre.

That is brilliant Sam. Certainly is an original design, must have taken some work to get the balance so perfect.
