A few months ago a friend ask me if I could come up with an idea to mount this old beer tap that was recently given to him by his uncle. It seems his Grandfather owned a Hote l /Tavern in Mt. Pleasant, Pa. during prohibition. The tap itself dates back to the late 1800’s and was in poor repair. My friend had it re-plated. I found these cut offs of black walnut (crotch) that I thought would be perfect for this project. My friend was pleased. Thanks for looking.

You chose a pretty piece of wood to show off their family keepsake. I especially like the live edge detail with the grain radiating out from it.
