Hey Lumberjocks, this is the first project i have completed since my suregery in May. I finished it and wanted to get it out. I saw a bellow on lumber jocks a couple weeks ago from Jim Finn and emailed him and he sent me some info on how to make one. So i decided to make one very similar to his. I wanted to incorporate a leather inlay with it. It is made of red oak, the wooden nozzel is made of mapel. The metal end is a 30-06 shell , black leather, and fancy lace from a craft store. Hope you like it. I think it turned out pretty good.

Very cool Monty. I especially like how you incorporated the deer. I may have to give one of these a shot some day. Hope mine comes out as well as yours.

I make and sell these locally, Where does yours suck in the air. Not through the nozzle right? That would be dangerous as far as fire is concerned. I have a great solution if anybody is interested. cheap and simple. I do like the deer touch, really adds character

Getneds, You wanted to know where the air suck in at , i have a 3/4 inch hole in the back of the bellow, and i attached a piece of square shaped leather on the inside tacked down on all four sides. I added a picture(the last one) to show you what it looks like. Thanks everybody for all your comments.

Great job. I agree the leather inlay adds to the bellows.
