I should add I didn't make those... So they don't fit on the DIY thread, just wanted to show them off!

The ends were just tucked in. It was just a fun dick move to mess with a buddy's rope. He had to untie it the next time he went climbing. I wasn't gonna do anything to it like glue them in place or sew them together.

The SWMBO made me these for my birthday. Bought the handles from Rogue and then painted on the chalkboard.

I was a big fan of these tap handles when I saw them in a brewpub around where I live. The brewmaster had them filled with the recipe of the brew in the keg.

For a little extra grain and a few hops pellets I thought it was a very clever way to distinguish one beer from another.

I made a few more handles tonight with different size faces. The local homebrew store wants to carry them so I need to make a few more. I'm hoping that ill be able to fund my hobby with what I make from them.

Here are a few pics of the ones I worked on tonight.

Ah-ha, legs from Lowes. I used those to make a couple of tap handles myself.
