So my wife and I have now officially been married for 5 years. The 5th anniversary was the “wood” anniversary and my wife got me these AWESOME custom tap handles. As if its not cool enough to get tap handles for an anniversary, she did it the right way. By that I mean she found someone out there that built them by hand and customized them. She found the guy on Etsy who makes tap handles and worked with him to make these four custom handles.
In case you can’t see, the one on the left says “CNY Brew” and has a cool hops vine creeping up the word brew. The second handle is an actual dog paw print by my dog (yes, it’s my dog’s real paw print, freaking awesome). The third handle is my wife and my initials, an the one on the right is a symbol from my fraternity. The handles are made from tiger maple and each have all kinds of awesome patterns.
The guy (who you can follow on FaceBook as well) kept in close communication with my wife during the planning process, he picked out the wood himself and made them with plenty of extra personal touches. It feels so much better knowing that someone worked on these knowing what we wanted and who we were, not just an order to fill.
I recommend checking out his work, Jerry was great to work with and produced a beautiful product. Here is his website as well http://www.jerryswoodworks.com
