Default DIY Tap Handle?

I broke my tap handle a couple of days ago, just the regular black boring one. Anyone got any cool ideas on what to make a new one with. What kind of custom tap handles has everyone made?

While the handles themselves aren't DIY, I'm kind of liking these ones. Just slide in an appropriate picture or graphic.

With one of these:

and an drill you can make anything into a tap handle (well, not anything, meat wouldn't work, or a cat, but lots of things).

I'm just using oak, though.

Great, now Yuri is going to have a whole set of meat and cat handles. Nice going, Catfish.

A while ago, I was surfing the galleries here and saw some of what appeared to be homemade tap handles..... was going to ask where the brewer purchased the items to make them, but I'm not ready to start building handles yet... still need to work on brewing. Brewtopia's Naked city handles are pretty cool... I like the small Naked city emblems on top.

For about 3 bucks each you can get these lovely wooden mini table legs from Lowes.



For a small fee, I know a woodworker who will make personalized tap handles like these.
