Oak Bellows With Impressive Knots [SOLD 4 Dec]
This was a particular piece of oak that really jumped out at me at the timber mill! I could see such great potential for a really interesting bellows featuring those impressive knots – then I had to wait patiently to complete the build before applying my own natural oil and wax to see the oak come alive!
The leather chosen to complement the distinctive oak is a soft, aged appearance leather in a green/brown colour called ‘Alga’ – a perfect match with bronze tacks and a strong metal bronzed nozzle.
Each bellows is crafted from locally sourced timber that is inspected and selected for its grain, knots or characteristics that make the finished product unique. Some time goes into sanding and shaping – particularly to make sure that the handles are smooth, comfortable and provide the perfect feel from the very first time you pick them up.
The leather is supple but strong to give your bellows great ‘lungs’, as well as providing the covering over a double hinge to ensure the strength of the bellows for years to come. The nozzle, designed by Anne and engineered locally, is made to focus the flow of air just where you need it.
The bellows are balanced and comfortable to hold as well as being very practical and useful.
Approximate size: 58cm x 18cm – 23″ x 7″. Weight: approx. 1.4kg
