Rule #10;  "I can make that" translates to; "I'm to cheap to buy it new."

Simple, elegant, usefull. May we have details about the forging?
  1. Branches forge welded?
  2. Hook tenoned?
  3. Material for the branches, for the arms, for the hook?
I can see a version of this candelabra with 6 candles to set on a table.

Thanks for posting.
The alternative to getting old is not interesting.

Very nice.
How did you attach the candle holders to the limbs? EDIT: Saw the other candle holder you made; figured it out.

I call that a scrivett
I use a round headed screw and grind the screwdriver slot out .
Then I forge the head using a bolster block.
When assembled it looks like a rivet but holds like a bolt
