Beer Faucet Handle

My Hungarian wife’s niece recently became an au pair for a family in Maryland. The husband makes beer and sent me some. From photos my niece sent, this fellow has his homemade beer on tap and he’s missing one handle. I hope to get a case next time she comes to visit. :-)

The stem is walnut and the frame is maple. The center of the frame is some scrap that I painted with chalk board paint on both sides so he can identify his beer. It’s finished with Danish oil (just put it on). The walnut came from my parents farm. I picked it up last year and it’s been drying out in my garage for a while. It’s got quite a nice grain from being a branch with a couple of knots in it. It doesn’t show up well in the photos, though. The mitres aren’t the greatest. That’s always a challenge for me.

Watch out for home brew its good for giving you a thumping headache next morning.
When my Dad was alive he also made home brew and if I visited he made me feel like one of his prodical sons had returned and next day I paid for it big time!!

Nice work I am sure it will be appreciated.
