At Bearded Boy Designs, we believe in doing our part to make the world a more sustainable place. That’s why we use urban wood salvaged throughout the Portland metropolitan area, when possible. This helps cut down on waste and provides a more sustainable environment. As a bonus, the salvaged wood has developed unique and beautiful character that will enhance the look of your wooden tap handle.


One of the biggest advantages of our custom wood beer tap handles is the endless amount of design options our in-house design team can bring to life. Before we begin each project, we discuss what designs, colors, etc. you have in mind.

After we’re confident everyone’s on the same page, we will prepare a prototype at no additional charge. We do this to ensure you’re happy with the final product.


Once we have the materials and design, the creation process can begin. Our team of skilled craftsmen has access to the finest tools in the industry to ensure the final product is as flawless as possible. We start by cutting the salvaged wood into smaller, more manageable pieces. Next, we drill a hole for the threaded insert. This step is necessary to ensuring the tap handle can be used on typical beer dispensers. We then place the tapper on the lathe to rough turn it, and lastly, we sand it to create the desired shape. For more complicated designs, the process may differ slightly.
