Hi Everyone
This is a Custom Beer Tap Handle of the Hamilton Crest I just completed.
Overall dimensions are 8 1/2" tall x 3.75" wide The Intarsia consists of 60 pieces from 9 different woods. The biggest challenge on this project (besides working with lots of little pieces) was bending the 2 ebony bands. I cut the ebony into 3/16" x 1/16" strips then using a woodburning iron heated the strips on the shaft of the iron and formed the circular shapes until they fit. Great trick if you need to make curved shapes. The dime shows the scale of the pieces.
Challenging little project
