READY TO SHIP: Handmade Fireplace Bellows, Ash with Carved and Hand Painted Owl, Dark Brown Leather, Bronze Tacks

These bellows were crafted from ash. The front of the bellows features a carved and hand painted owl design. These ash bellows are light weight relative to some of the other woods used in my shop. The leather is a rich dark brown, and the tacks are matte bronze colored. A leather strap is threaded through holes in the handle to hold the paddles together for storage and for hanging. A pair of sturdy brass hinges connects the paddles under the leather boot, which features a brass nozzle. These bellows are made to last for generations, while bringing a sense of history to your hearth. A few puffs from these bellows will help get a fire started in your fireplace, woodstove or fire pit.


Our bellows and other wooden items are crafted by hand in the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia. We prefer to bring new life to antique wood by recycling lumber from old barns, houses and furniture to create our one-of-a-kind pieces. Imperfections in the wood such as knots and worm holes grace these timeless designs. Created using a combination of hand tools and modern technology, our items are beautiful as well as functional.

Do you like what you see, but would prefer a different stain or engraved design, or no design at all? Please contact us to inquire about custom items. Allow 6-8 weeks processing time for custom orders.

You may also choose to provide me with additional personal information (for a custom order, for example), if you contact me directly.


    Why I Need Your Information and How I Use It

    I rely on a number of legal bases to collect, use, and share your information, including:
    • as needed to provide my services, such as when I use your information to fulfil your order, to settle disputes, or to provide customer support;
    • if necessary to comply with a legal obligation or court order or in connection with a legal claim, such as retaining information about your purchases if required by tax law; and
    • as necessary for the purpose of my legitimate interests, if those legitimate interests are not overridden by your rights or interests, such as 1) providing and improving my services. I use your information to provide the services you requested and in my legitimate interest to improve my services; and 2) Compliance with the Etsy Seller Policy and Terms of Use. I use your information as necessary to comply with my obligations under the Etsy Seller Policy and Terms of Use.

    Information about my customers is important to my business. I share your personal information for very limited reasons and in limited circumstances, as follows:
    • Etsy. I share information with Etsy as necessary to provide you my services and comply with my obligations under both the Etsy Seller Policy and Etsy Terms of Use.
    • Service providers. I engage delivery services to provide services to my shop. I will share your personal information with these third parties, but only to the extent necessary to perform these services.
    • Compliance with laws. I may collect, use, retain, and share your information if I have a good faith belief that it is reasonably necessary to: (a) respond to legal process or to government requests; (b) enforce my agreements, terms and policies; (c) prevent, investigate, and address fraud and other illegal activity, security, or technical issues; or (d) protect the rights, property, and safety of my customers, or others.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    What type of images can you engrave on my bellows?

    My engraver requires a black and white image in JPEG, GIF, or other image format. The resolution must be good so the image will remain crisp when enlarged. If you need assistance locating a suitable image, please contact me and I'll be glad to help.

    What if I place a bellows order and then decide later that I want to have it engraved?

    Please contact me to see where I am in the assembly process. It's fine to add engraving as long as the bellows are still in progress. However, once the bellows is assembled, it will not fit in my engraver.

    How can I maintain my bellows or trivet?

    To care for the wood, any product intended to clean or polish wood may be used. The leather may be treated with neatsfoot oil or similar leather care products. The brass nozzle may be cleaned with commercial brass cleaner, or simply polished with fine steel wool.

    DO NOT IMMERSE YOUR BELLOWS OR TRIVET IN WATER. DO NOT SCRUB THE SURFACE VIGOROUSLY WITH WATER OR ANY CLEANING PRODUCT. THIS WILL REMOVE THE TUNG OIL FINISH AND LIGHTEN THE ENGRAVED AREAS. I AM NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY MISHAPS INVOLVING YOUR ITEM DUE TO CLEANING OR WATER DAMAGE.
