Beer tap handles

Postby kminden » Thu Sep 07, 2017 2:40 am

Some beer taps handles I recently completed for our up coming Octoberfest celebration (our community is called Block so we refer to the celebration as "Blocktoberfest").

The one on the left has brass inlay for the lettering. First time I had tried it and was happy with the way it turned out.

V carved the lettering then filled with powered
Brass then applied thin super glue. Let it set then sanded flush.

They look very good and it's ironic that I saw this? I'm actually trying to draw a tap handle for a new local mini brewery that I just made signage for.

Here is my attempt at a 3 sided tap handle. I cut it in a piece of pine to be sure it was was I thought it would be?

Bryson,

Love the way the texture works throughout the piece. I really need to try a few of these...
