Easy-To-Make Candle Holder
Cut a circle from the top for oxygen to enter and also to light the candle.
Screw to the top, a small piece of metal, bent like a lazy, stretched out "S". The bottom part of the "S" is screwed into the top and arches up over the hole where the oxygen enters.
Using a screw to fasten this piece of metal allows it to swivel to the side when lighting the candle. It can then swivel back over the hole to protect flame from wind and rain when used outside.
Of the four glass sides, three should be stationary and one side will need to slide out from a slot in the top piece. To replace the candle, slide out this glass piece.
Attach a small chain to carry the candle or to hang it from a tree or hook.
This holder is wind proof in most circumstances. Al intends making some of these candle holders himself though claims he is not skilled in woodworking. He will alter these plans by replacing at least two of the glass sides with mirror tile. He is also considering using Plexiglas in place of regular glass for safety and durability.
