There was a person at my garage sale and was looking for a air bellow for his fire place. I told him it sold already but it can’t be that hard to make one so this is my first one I made. Got my hardware at ace hardware, the leather at Jo-Ann’s and the wood from a Cabernet shop. I drew up my pattern then put it on the board and stapled two boards together on the sides. I made my cut on the scroll saw and got two boards the same cut that way. The leather was a challenge in working it around the wood. I did stain it and spray high clear gloss on the wood before putting it together. This air bellow blows air very well and I will have a happy happy customer. One like this on line sells for $55.00 I made this one for $45.00 profit as it was my first one so I gave my customer a break. Thanks for looking.
