I haven’t posted in awhile. I decided I wanted something different for my newest kegerator tap tower. I decided to 3D print one. I wanted it to be some type of castle. I found a 3D dice tower from Lord of the Rings, Barad-Dūr which is Sauron’s Tower. I modified it to make my tap tower. It is self insulating. I made the drip tray so that it is not attached so it can be emptied. I put a nitro tap on it and am serving a Nitro Macaroon hard cider out of it. It took about 6 days to print and it was printed in 4 pieces.

I have a Creality CR-10Mini. It does a great job for what I have been doing. I am in the process of printing parts for my portable kegerator.

Looks excellent. Needs an Eye though.

I've found Eye of Sauron beer coasters at Walmart that might work, Lord of the Rings Eye of Sauron Novelty Coaster Set - Walmart.com

Another more artistically-intensive way would be to get a piece of glass and some of that acrylic stained glass paint, then paint an Eye that you can light from the side with an LED so it glows.

Thank you. I had thought about an eye but haven’t figured out how I would want to do it.

The sweetness of that thing is off the charts! Time to start buttering up my 3d printing friends.
