Rare Rippled Oak Bellows
Rare and beautiful rippled oak has been lovingly formed and ideally partnered with rich, soft Cumin Seed leather for these very unusual bellows…
Rippled wood can be found in a number of species, but is rare in oak. There seems there is no clear reason for the occurrence – however, the result can be quite spectacular!
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.
These solid oak 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. 1.7kg (because of the density of the rippled wood, these weigh a little more than others)
