This tap handle was inspired by the book “Owl Moon” by Jane Yolen and illustrated by John Schoenherr. My mom would read this book to my siblings and me when we were little. The owl is perched on a pedestal with a quote from the last page of the book, “To go owling, you don’t need words, or warm, or anything but hope.”
The owl is made from Beach Wood, pedestal is Cherry and Purple Heart. The feather pattern and lettering was burned in using a wood burning pen.
