This instructable shows you how to make a candle holder or plant holder out of bike gears.
I originally made this a long time ago and I used it to show off this little 9V Lantern Instuctable , which prompted a lot of people to ask about the stand.

Step 1: Parts and Tools
Dremel or hacksaw
Step 2: Half
Cut the chainring in half. I used a dremel mounted on the dremel multivise to do this.
Step 3: Mark the Middle
Line up both halves of the chainring, and mark the middle.
Step 4: Notch
Cut a notch in the middle, on one half of the chainring cut the notch on the top, on the other cut the notch on the bottom. This way they will fit together and be level with the ground.
Step 5: Test
Try it out and see how it works.
Step 6: Mix Up Your JB Weld.
Mix up your JB Weld.
Just a tip, if you do this in a really cold garage (like I did...) the JB Weld will be a little thicker than usual.
Step 7: Attach the Cassette
JB Weld the notch in the chainring.
JB Weld up the cassette.
Clean up any extra JB Weld.
Let it dry and sand off any extra, clean up your new candle stand and use it.
