I've seen only a few threads on here for custom wood tap handles and would like to see if we can compile some pictures into one thread. I think Nostalgia is the only one that I have been able to find. They are beautiful but i'd like to see more ideas!!! Please post them up here if you can!!

Thanks!!

I became an Uncle today! I made a batch of beer and this tap handle to Celebrate "It'lls" arrival. We were calling the baby "It'll" because they didn't discover the sex of the baby and we all kept saying "It'll be a boy" or "It'll be a girl" or "It'll have 6 toes on each foot" and that sort of thing. Just stuck!

SO I made this tap handle and got some chalkboard paint and voila, It'lls First Ale!

Not wooden but pretty nice anyway - my brother in law had access to a really nice machine shop.

Here's a custom wood tap handle we're working with now. It's got interchangable inserts with magnets in the handle and magnets in the inserts. Why both? So you can stick the unused inserts on your fridge so you don't lose them like I do. It's made of hard maple with natural wax finish.

I really like the question mark and custom carved heads.

Here is another for the collection...laminated wood. This one is heartwood poplar, maple and walnut. I have some glue-ups with cherry in them I'm saving for a very special idea...
