...Tap handles, of course.

I'm thinking of things I can do while I'm waiting for all of my kegging and fridge conversion equipment to arrive, and I realized I can probably whip up some tap handles. I've seen some of the table leg ones around here which is probably what I'll go with unless I'm inspired by something else.

Does anyone have any pictures of nice, cool, funny...tap handles that they'd like to show off?

If you want to see a wide variety, check out "The Tap Handle Guy" on Ebay. He has a very wide assortment; although, they can be pricey. You should at least be able to get some ideas.

Mine aren't funny anymore because I don't have the time to be creative, I used to do custom lables for every beer. These are very simple to make and are very functional. They have a big 3" X 4" face for sticking the lable and they are short enough that they don't get in the way.

Oh, and they are very cheap to make....

Any finished pictures? They look like they are going to be really nice. As a matter of fact, they would look really great on my new draft box...
