I made this fully functioning fireplace bellows for a friend to use in his fishing cabin. It is made of eastern red cedar and soft maple inlay with leather and a brass nozzle. 18” long 6” wide. I have made fifty bellows over the past 30 years but this is the first one I did an inlay in. (Will not be my last)

Very nice! I have a friend that would love that. Probably never use it though cause we are here in Las Vegas and don’t usually need fires for fishing cabins.

Looks really great. I suspect that it’s going to be in use for many years.
