I have a standing invitation from a friend to make me a custom tap handle to round out my 4 tap kegerator. For some reason I am feeling a little uninspired.. I already have a Seahawks Tap Handle Pee Wee Herman Head (which creeps people out), and Custom made Twisted Sister logo tap handle (What can I say, 1984-85 are very memorable for me)... I was thinking it might be cool to add a He-Man action figure or something, but I don't know.. I think I am over the mid 80's theme and it's time for something new.. If you guys could have anything turned into a tap handle, what would it be and why?

I want to take some old/broken guitar necks and saw them off several inches below the headstock, keeping the tuners, frets and strings.

I currently have a Lycaonian obol from 258 A.D. depicting Percius holding the severed head of Medusa, I will be putting this in a sterling silver bezel inlayed into a tap handle for my Ferryman's ale, a nod to the tradition of placing an obol on the deceased persons tongue or eyelids to pay the ferryman for the journey to the afterlife.

Inspiration for a tap handle comes from my imagination, as well as the fact that I packrat loads of stuff away. I have a stone arrowhead I dug up 25 years ago on our property in WI that is just itching for a place on a handle.

In the same vein, I'm thinking Transformers. Or possibly a Rock 'Em Sock 'Em robot.

A Oboe. How cool would it be to have an Oboe tap handle.

that would be one long tap handle, not quite as epic as having a bassoon tap handle, but still a big honkin tap handle. if I were going for musical tap handle I would stick to a cut guitar neck or even a kazoo or a harmonica
