I wasn’t kidding when I said the shape of my turned tap handle would be a familiar tool-handle shape. I turned the handles above for a Christmas gift this year. They’re an inch or so shorter than the tap handle, with different end diameters to match each tool, but otherwise they’re all the same idea.
These also have threaded inserts instead of the maple being tapped with threads directly. That will be important for cleaning. These can be spun off of their tool ends easily. Those ends can go through the dishwasher, while the handles get a lighter hand washing.
