I made this keg tap handle for a friend as a Christmas present. The material is curly maple purchased from David Spacht’s mill, which I had to glue up to get sufficient thickness. I then made a template in the form of the state of NJ, and routed the outline to 1/4” deep. Following that, I rough cut away the waste on the band saw, then finished up the detail outline on the scroll saw, turning the speed way down so as not to start a fire :-) A bit of sanding at the spindle sander and by hand and voila—a beer tap handle. I can’t take credit for the woodburning this time. It was sent out for a professional to do.
