  • Fireplace Bellows.

    I make these decorative and functional fireplace bellows. This is my latest. It is 15" long, 6" wide and made of cedar. The inlay is soft maple. The brass nozzle is made from a 30-30 shell.

    Hi Jim. That inlay is beautiful. I see all the veining, so do you cut the inlay and fit first before the veining?

        Thank you for the kind comments.
        This is double bevel Inlay.
        I cut the outline of the inlay and drop out the maple piece and then I re-tape the cedar eagle to it and do the veining with a bit larger saw blade and at 90 degrees. Then I glue the maple piece into the cedar bellows. (Inlay it) I do it this way because it is faster for me. Two reasons to do the veining on the cedar (scrap) along with the maple inlay. (1)The pattern is drawn on the cedar, not the maple and (2) cutting the two thicknesses together slows down the cutting and gives me better control while doing the veining.

              Sorry to hear that Scott. Bruce had it but I never did. And I try to isolate from Bruce whenever I can. ūü§™ We were even around our son and grandson right before they were diagnosed and nothing for us. I guess I overdid the shopping Carole.

              My saw is in a severe state of depression due to alleged abandonment. We have been clearing Becky's office since her retirement. She one of the last two original occupants of that new building in 2001, so it has been a lot of trips to the recycling bin with student thesis files, convention papers and...

              Whatever therapy works for you - is a good therapy. Glad your touch/retail therapy was beneficial for you Betty.

              Scott, I am so sorry to ear that you and your wife have both had to fight through Covid. I hope this means that you are both on your way to healing, if a bit slowly....
