picked this decorative stool at AC more FOR $8. i'm just going to saw the legs off, stain, and then i think just drill a hole through the bottoms roughly the same size as the threads and just force them on. cant beat 8 bucks.

Great find. Use some inserts instead of forcing them on. NORTHERN BREWER: Tap Handles Scroll down to the "Tap Handle Insert".

A legless stool for a tap handle? Brilliant!

FYI, you can buy legs like that one by one at Home Depot. I'm making some tap handles for my club with some small legs right now.

one by one is nice, when i went in to home depot first i couldnt find anything, didnt want to ask anyone and became impatient so my girlfriend suggested acmore it just so happened that i have 4 taps anyway so it worked out well.
