I've had this aluminum hex bar sitting around forever, and I finally found a project for it:
I wish I still had a lathe, because it'd be nice to turn down the ends, but I think they look pretty cool, anyway.
I think I'm going to dovetail one or both of the sides next to the logo so I can put a strip of paper with the beer name/type in it. I'll likely just go with a single dovetailed side unless someone here comes up with a great reason to bracket the logo with labels (which will look cluttered, IMHO).
I'm not sure what color to make them. I can choose from:
Black - gloss, matte, wrinkle
White - gloss
Red - gloss
Silver vein - a dark gray hammertone looking finish that has flecks of silver in it - looks pretty cool
I want to inlay the letters. At the moment, I'm leaning toward black wrinkle with white letters. Red letters might look cool, but maybe a little too funky. White with black letters would be sharp, but maybe a little too art deco.
