and an drill you can make anything into a tap handle (well, not anything, meat wouldn't work, or a cat, but lots of things).

I'm just using oak, though.
Where do you find those?

We picked one up at Lowe's on Friday. HWMBO made these tap handles out of some table legs (cut from a three dollar table) and some of those wooden plaques you can get at a craft store for about 50 cents.


Laminated the labels and then attached them with a removable sticky, so we can change them out; simple, cheap, and looks good (we think )

I did the same thing, only I figured that the plaques were so cheap I could just sandwich them back-to-back, decoupage the label on, and tap a threaded ferrule into them, making one for each style of beer. I guess I went the hard way. BTW, I used candlesticks as the actual taphandle.

Here's how I put them together:


And here's what they look like when they're finished:
