New tap handle(s)
 
Just finished this one up yesterday. My goal is to do 6 of these with different woods and celtic knot patterns. It remains to be seen whether my attention span is up to the task (hint - smart money is on me burning out around 2 1/2 :))

Here's a pic of it installed...

And what will hopefully be a full mug-shot lineup eventually.

Hopefully by posting this here, I'll shame myself into finishing the project. :mug:

Wow, that's awesome. How long did it take?

Nice!! I thought I was going to be impressive and turn some out on the lathe!

Wow!! That is beautiful!

I know what you mean about attention spans. :D However, it's not as if you have to crank these all out in a night, right? Take as long as you need...time is gonna pass either way. Would you rather look back and be impressed with all six or look back and say "what if..."? So what if it takes a full year or even longer?

That is extremely awesome! I think looking at that next to the plain black ones will be good motivation. Plus, like Tripod said, you don't have to get them done immediately and the time is going to pass. You should start a new one each time you brew a beer and try to have it done by the time it is ready to carb. Of course that may mean slowing down the number of brews you have going.... :)

I like the black ones better.




No, not really. That is easily one of the nicest tap handles I've ever seen in my life.

That does look great. Wood working is certainly a skill I do not have though...
