SWMBO got me a Haier 2 tap kegerator for my 30th B-Day coming up next week. I went on the search for tap handles and realized they are freakin expensive!
So I took a trip to Lowes and this is what I came up with... Let me know what you think.
2 3/8 Threaded insert
2 5/16 Threaded insert
2 Pine Plinth block (from trim section) these are the faces
2 6" Early American wooden legs
2 Drawer pulls (on top)
Total cost less than $20 for 2
I had on hand black glossy spray paint, wood glue, and chalkboard paint.
Sorry I didn't take pics throughout the build - but I can give a quick rundown.
First I rubbed them down with wood filler to fill in the cracks cause by the grain, let that dry a few hours and sanded it smooth.
Then I drilled a 1/2" hole through the bottom of the legs to fit the 3/8 inserts for the faucets.
Drill the 3/8 hole for the insert for the plinth block - this will allow you to change out tops... if you want to make a label for each of your beers and interchange them instead of using chalkboard paint.
Paint paint paint, drill hole for drawer pull, glue drawer pull and attached to kegerator. TADA!
