    Made my own handles. Carved from cedar and stained a different shade. Used my dremmel to make lettering. The chalk board is in the back, that's how I identify each brew. Worked for Oktoberfest. Very easy to make with hardware bought from More Beer. Pretty cheap.

    I wish I had a lathe. I have lots of ideas but no equipment, or skills.

    Skills are overrated, you just need a good hammer and a lot of time.

    Very cool. I really like those handles.

    And fuzzy is right, you can get some very usable tools from HF for not much money.

    Very nice. And definitely one of a kind.
