Cheese Grater Candle Holder

Ever wondered what to do with your old and rusty cheese grater you received from your grandmother? Well, too much free time on one's hands, and look what crazy ideas are born!

Yes, that is right - I used mine as a candle holder! It's surprising to see the way light comes out of the small or big holes of the grater, together creating a lovely picture of light and shadow on the wall. So now the old cheese grater with such a long history can be used again, and whether you put it on a wooden table or a slate counter top, it looks good both ways.

TIP: Use an old ashtray or a wooden block to get a bottom.

WARNING! Do not touch with bare hands immediately after extinguishing the flame - the grater is hot (own experience!).
