Turning wood is almost as addicting as brewing...

I've done a few handles now. I originally started working on a few a couple years ago, and posted early in this thread. I ended up using the handles and mounting the faucets on a barrel to serve soda at my sister's wedding. Since then I went nuts and turned quite a few more.

Wow, way to show me up.

Haven't been on this thread in a while but looking to make another tap handle, so many great ideas on here. Hopefully I'll have something worth posting soon.
