I had been telling my boys (18&22) that I saw some cool tap handles on this forum, and would maybe make some one day.
The went behind my back and ordered the brass inserts, cut the handles from some left over cypress from when we built the bar in our cookroom. They then engraved them on the laser engraver at work. What a surprise! Great kids!
They then asked me what other beers I have, or will have soon, so they can engrave the other handles. Cool!

3 taps, and only 2 custom handles? They're not THAT good a pair of kids.

I have a laser engraver at work and never thought of that. Now I just have to find me some wood.
Great idea. Thanks.

Top notch, as always. I always drool over your setup. And a Belgian Pale sounds delicious right now.
