Default WTB (Want To Buy) - Tap Handles

I made my own tap handles out of Home depot banister supports and they do the job but we are considering a move and I want to "class up" but 6 tap tower because I really want to install it directly into the kitchen counter top.

Does anyone have any nice tap handles sitting around? heck I would even like 6 matching black plastic tap handles if I could get them cheap enough.

Let my know what you have HBT!

thanks, Ian

I make custom tap handles from various exotic and domestic hardwoods. Take a look at some of the various ones I've done at the link below and see if something sparks your interest. If you wanted something where all six matched, I could duplicate a relatively simple pattern all in the same wood, or have the same pattern, but different woods across all of them to distinguish one brew from another. Send me a PM if you want to talk it over.

If you like that spiral twist look, check theses out. I made them for the owner of homebrewstuff.com as a trade for some kegging equipment. They were a pain to do, but turned out awesome.

Yeah, that one was awesome. I turned it on a lathe and then hand carved the spirals out of black walnut with a turquoise inlace. It took me almost 5 hours to make. I almost hate to say it, but if I were to do that type again I'd have to charge around $120 to get my time back out of it. My other ones go for closer to $40, but these spirals just take forever. Let me know if you want to see any others I've done or have available. I made over 50 different handles to date, so there are lots of options out there.

I would also love one or a couple of the left ones if the price is right.
