Reference on Tap Handle Maker
Just saw the thread on making handles yourself and realized I needed to get a post out on a guy that I use here locally. He's got a 4 axis wood carving machine and has done some incredibly high-end stuff such as fireplace mantles etc. so I asked him if he could apply it to handles - and of course he could.
I'm using him now to turn out some very nice carved handles with our graphics clear coated into the finish. I just wanted to get the word out that while I'm not pushing his capabilities to the limits - he can do some amazing things with wood and should be able to create some truly unique things on the custom side.
If you're in the market for handles - give him a call or an email, he does great work.
