I recently upgraded my kegerator by lifting the tower 1.5" so that the faucet will allow pouring into a proper 0.5 L hefeweizen glass.
The "lift" is just two pieces of 0.75" thick poplar, glued together, sanded, and rounded over, with some Cabot red mahogany oil based stain and Minwax fast drying polyurethane. I really think it looks nice with the glossy finish along with the rest of the kegerator top and tower.
I also made a tap handle (as seen on the tower), using the same wood and coating. Having stole an idea from the local Gordon Biersch microbrewery, my thought is to get a small chalkboard attached to the tap handle so I can write what's currently on tap. The next picture shows the small chalkboard next to my latest batch of altbier (yum).
Can anyone offer a suggestion of how to get the chalkboard onto the tap handle without it looking like it was glued on? The mini chalkboard is about 1/8" thick. I'm specifically looking for ideas around paint, borders, hardware, etc.
Thanks in advance!
