    Custom Intarsia Tap Handles and Tower

    Hi Everyone
    Many of you may remember the thread I started a while back titled "The Nitty Gritty" which was about the custom tap handles I was commissioned to do for a client's home pub--well here are a few pics of the completed Installation of the custom tap handles and tower. Keith did a real nice job on the pub set-up and brews up some tasty beer.
    This was a fun project

    That guy obviously takes his brewing seriously. He has a really nice home bar, and those tap handles really add that extra touch. Fantastic job Mike!

    Those are amazing. Probably the nicest tap handles I've ever seen.

    What did you do on the inside of the tower for sealing and insulation? You do can some condensation (or at least it was a problem with my metal tower before I sold it, wood would probably be better that way) and w/o insulation you have almost 1/2 a beer thats in the warmer top section (some folks put a small fan under the tower to re-circ the air to help solve both problems).
