Shelves - special addition...the silver forks/spoons for hooks!

I bend the forks by using a vise. I then drill a hole in the handle or below the tines of the fork just big enough for the screw.

These are several shelves that I have made with the specialty of the hooks being old silver forks or spoon handles with the 'bowl' cut off.

Questions: How do you attach the silverware to the shelf?
