Beer Tap Handles!

It’s no fun pouring a pint from your own built in beer tower in your own custom pub when you’re still using the original crappy plastic tap handles.
Okay, yes it is. It’s always fun. However, it’s even better with custom tap handles.
That was our project this weekend.
The beer tower is a dual tap so we have a beer keg on one and a keg of fizzy water on the other.
The first tap is a pretty simple one for the fizzy water:

The beer taps are going to be a bit more interesting. I’ve been working on designs for every beer style. We cut our West Creek Homebrew tap this weekend and I thought I’d take a few photos of the process.

Here’s Derek lining up the CNC to 0,0,0:

Then comes the cutout, the clean up, sanding and finishing with tinted epoxy:

This is my initial drawing of the next tap. I’ll post a photo once it’s cut and finished:
