Thought I'd update.

I've been using my Keezer for about eight months now and it has been fantastic. I did have a problem with my controller not working right and freezing a couple of kegs, but it seems to be ok now.

This is the finished product:


and these are some of the tap handles that I have made. Nothing fancy, but they serve the purpose

I have some other generic handles. Other than the Princess these are on a pretty regular rotation. I made the Princess for a Blonde that I made for my wife's Bunco group. I tend to make them as a novelty-it is pretty obvious that I don't put a lot of time into them. I make them out of scraps I have around and use a saber saw, a hand planer, angle grinder, sander and wood burner to make them. It only takes a couple of hours, so if I get some free time, I'm sure I'll make more.

Congrats on a beautiful keezer. Thoroughly enjoyed this thread and learned a few things along the way. Thank you. The tap handles are great; just one question though. How did you mount them to the faucet?

and happy brewing.

Thanks, Dan, I'm not sure where I bought them, but I bought ferrules and hanger bolts like these from MoreBeer http://morebeer.com/category/beer-tap-handles.html

I made the handles from scrap wood I had laying around that I cut with a jig saw and shaped with a sanding disc on my angle grinder. They are not precise by any means. The hardest part was drilling a reasonably straight hole to put the hanger bolts in. I am not an artist by any means, I just drew my designs, used a wood burner to burn them into the wood and then coated them with shellac that I had left over from the Keezer. They were a fun project that didn't take very long to do.

BTW you can get hanger bolts at Home Depot for less$$ but they are longer so you have to drill a deeper hole to mount them in the handle.
