Default Some more custom tap handles

Here are three that I did recently. Left to right: birdseye maple, zebrawood and spalted American beech.





The birdseye is unbelievable. Here's a closeup:



And of course, the action shot!



Incidentally, the zebrawood one is too tall for my fridge (I measured 8" and made the handle 9", duh) so it will most likely end up in the classifieds shortly.

they look really great. Did you finish them with oil, or urethane?

I actually haven't finished them with anything yet. I'm still deciding on what sort of finish to try. It'll likely be something in a spray can. I was going to use wipe on oil-based polyurethane but it takes 4 hours for a coat to dry, and I'd want several coats on these guys.

LOVE that birds eye maple...

I would be careful of dripping if you go with spray on, but they have spray on lacquer and such that would work pretty good (still takes awhile to dry). Great workmanship!

I think I need to go play with my dads lathe...

Would you be interested in producing more of those birdseye maple ones? I'd be interested in purchasing a couple.

Thanks guys. Let me just work out a finishing schedule and I'll post up in this thread when I'm ready to go.

I should probably get a vendor account here first, too, so I don't get in trouble with management
