As I get my coffee bar set up I am looking to dust off my old wood lathe and make some custom wood pieces for my equipment, and the one piece I'm having trouble nailing down is a naked portafilter that would be a good candidate for a custom wood handle. Ideally I'd like one that I can simple unscrew the handle, make a wood sleeve and screw it back together (hope that makes sense) I but the only ones I see that seem to have this design are $100+ ones that are already wood. It just feels silly to buy the high end trim version, just to toss the high end trim ha ha. Any suggestions welcome, and thanks in advance for any help.
