If your co-worker was worth a sh!$ he would probably come up with one from his "collection". That is unless he drinks too much to remember to bring one to work.

This one's out on the back BBQ island/outdoor kitchen. It's a small shell of an abalone I found while diving (for bigger abalone) off the coast of Northern California. I drilled the hole with a diamond bit and epoxied a threaded insert into the shell. The tower is all stainless from Micromatic and has been sitting out in the weather for the past 2 years. Looks brand new

For some reason I was expecting something phallic.

I plan on making my own tap handle out of something. Not sure exactly what to make it out of yet. I found a few cool looking statues at a local store. One was a black dragon type looking thing holding a goblet. It was $8. My friend wanted me to use a sling shot that was for sale there to. It was a deer head with a sling shot between the antlers.

I'm just going to drill the bottom of whatever I use and tap it. I figure it should be fairly straight forward. If it strips out I'll simply drill it out oversized and put an insert in the bottom.
