I got all of the woodwork done. I decided to go old school on the finish and use shellac and paste wax. This is with two coats of shellac. I plan on hitting it with some fine steel wool before I put another coat and then again before I wax it

Thanks, Dan, I'm not sure where I bought them, but I bought ferrules and hanger bolts like these from MoreBeer http://morebeer.com/category/beer-tap-handles.html

I made the handles from scrap wood I had laying around that I cut with a jig saw and shaped with a sanding disc on my angle grinder. They are not precise by any means. The hardest part was drilling a reasonably straight hole to put the hanger bolts in. I am not an artist by any means, I just drew my designs, used a wood burner to burn them into the wood and then coated them with shellac that I had left over from the Keezer. They were a fun project that didn't take very long to do.

BTW you can get hanger bolts at Home Depot for less$$ but they are longer so you have to drill a deeper hole to mount them in the handle.
