Topic tags/keywords: cedar maple tablesaw sander scroll saw lathe shaping turning finishing scrollworking

This is my latest inlay project. It is a functioning fireplace bellows made of eastern red cedar with soft maple inlay. 15” long and 6” wide and the brass nozzle is made from a 30-30 shell. I use the double bevel inlay method on my scroll saw. After doing the inlay I put the bellows in my lathe and turn the whole thing shaping the nozzle end and the handle end.

Mike: I got the idea when I was visiting Norway in 1984 where I bought a hand carved bellows made of pine. I copied that one to make this one, I have made about 60 of them over the years.
