If you¿ve got a beer tap in your home bar, you can upgrade the look through a line of hardware and handle components available from Rockler Woodworking and Hardware (go to rockler.com and put ¿beer¿ in the search field). There¿s a pre-turned handle, attachment hardware, finials and label shields, with prices starting at $4.99. According to Rockler, the pre-turned handle can be connected to the tap¿s pour spout with either a tulip or a tapered ferrule, and the top of the handle can be decorated with any of three options. The label shield can display the logo or label of the beer on tap. Only simple drilling is required to install the hardware, Rockler says.
