I had collected these local beer taps many years ago and one of my sons has asked me many times to make him something from them. Since I don’t have a bar in the house, they sat unused all this time.

I finally set about trying to design a project around them, in particular the Keith’s IPA one, which is by far the most popular beer in my neck of the woods – its been brewed down the road for almost 200 years now!

I finally came up with the coat rack idea and used the tap as a finial for them. The “hooks” were turned to look like small bar taps and I added some detail to them by printing some water slide decals on my colour laser printer – did not turn out too bad. The wood is oak.

On the base, the Keith’s one has a plastic disc inlaid into the base and the other is another waterslide decal. I think the boys will be pleased with these…

Nic work, very creative use of the beer taps.

Like them. Really creative on using the beer taps as coat racks. Bet the boys were happy to have them, looks good and functional.

Have your say...
