We now have three pieces of copper that are shaped and hammered ready to be riveted together. The rivets may be of copper tacks cut off to the required length. Drill a hole the diameter of the tack in each end of the small piece that slips inside the box-cover, and placing that in its proper position inside the piece that holds the match-box, mark and drill the holes. Next place the box-holder in its proper position on the base, mark and drill the holes in the base. We now have in each of the three pieces two holes which will all correspond when in position. Care must be taken to have the head of the rivet rest on something solid; in this particular case, the head of a large nail held in the vise will do. Let the point of the rivet come on the under side of the base and be careful to hammer the rivet as shown in the drawing, Fig. 39. Color and finish in any of the previously described methods.

The next problem, the candlestick, may be constructed in many different ways, Figs. 41, 42, and 43, but all are made up of the same number of parts: base, pillar, socket, and sometimes handle. Those made with a round base and pillar with a glass ink-well for the candle-holder are the easiest to make. The glass ink-well referred to is the ordinary desk ink-well in common use in the public schools, and can be bought for forty cents a dozen. The dimensions of the well are given in Fig. 39.
